dance performance, 2011, 65'

After Playback (creation 2010), a silent performance in which only the titles of popular songs remained, Amauros is a continuation of the research into the relationship between sound and image; the intention being to play with certain associations and habits. Hasn't it been said that we can hear with our eyes and also see with our ears? In this new creation, it is not the absence of the music, but the absence of the image that will stimulate the imagination and memory of the audience. The dissimulation of instruments and other sound producing objects becomes a visual and choreographic material. Can we see the music? This new piece is a dance experience for the ears.

Audio Description is a procedure that makes films, shows and exhibitions accessible to blind or visually impaired audiences, thanks to a voice off-stage that describes the visual elements of the work. For Amauros, Séverine Skierski, an audio-describer specialising in cinema and theatre, recorded several descriptions of choreographies.

These descriptions are subject here and can be shown as video projections or in an installation.
