Liquid Families

performance / installation, 2022, 200'

Continuing the exploration of the voice in the choreographic field, the moving choir at work in Liquid Families mixes professional and amateur performers. For several hours, Liquid Families explores the mechanisms of collaboration and builds an installation conceived by the visual artists Gerda Steiner and Jörg Lenzlinger. Framed by a precise process and essential listening, Liquid Families attempts to form a group whose choreographic gestures and voices are in such harmony that the transformation, although improvised, is experienced by all simultaneously. Like in ritual, the importance here is the process - the cooperation and creation of a temporary community where voice and movement are linked to make of the body a total instrument.
