Small explosion with glass and repeat echo

dance performance, 2012, 70'

Sound. Music. Image. It is these three elements, key to any performance, that Nicole Seiler dissects and deconstructs by way of a conceptual research that is exacting, precise, minute, surgical. After having cut the sound in Playback, then plunged the audience into darkness, obliging them to see the dance with their ears (Amauros), Nicole Seiler focuses her work on what is choreographically speaking fundamental: movement and its relation to sound. Abstract bodies dialogue this time with concrete sound imagery. Faithful to her practice of engaging the spectator, she proposes a playful performance, a mirror open to various interpretations, the result of which is a very physical piece, an evocation and imaging of social interaction.
