In Hark! Luísa Saraiva & Senem Gökçe Oğultekin explore their love and interest in baroque music. With singing bodies, they build a relationship with the audience, turning sound into an experience and allowing for immersion into the music. The singing leaves traces in space, traces of sonorous bodies. Together with musicians Peter Rubel and Nathan Bontrager they are proposing a common understanding of movement and sound.  Hark! - Listen! Henry Purcell's Hail! Bright Cecilia and Nicholas Brady's libretto support the quest for an acoustic body that hears, receives, reverberates and echoes.



ABOUT HARK!


Hark! was originally developed as a live durational performance in early 2020 where the audience was in the centre of the space and allowed to come and go as they please. At the core of the work was the wish to create an immersive sound experience, with a focus on the movement of sound passing through and around the audience. By searching for a listening and acoustic quality in dancing, we hoped to create a context that privileges the effects of resonance and vibration in the experience of watching dance, and on how one can be moved and touched by sound. This documentation is a one-hour collection of excerpts in a non-linear fashion recorded during the final rehearsals in December 2020. Since the piece was planned as a four-hour format the choice of the length and materials of this video can be seen as a proposal on our part, as a possible viewpoint of Hark!.
