ouverture: mantras for a club
A starting point into a new series of listening situations
Embodiment, sound and voice embrace a constant state of trial and error in these listening situations. Stuck in the theatricality of domestic and emotional spaces, singing individuals explore their state of exposure and offer a testing ground for flatness, artificiality and affect. Through physical repetition and phonetics, the intimate setting opens an imaginary journey and the initial steps into a reflection on collectivity, interiority and inter-subjectivity.
Mathias Ringgenberg is artist-in-residence of Arsenic Lausanne and Neumarkt. This season he invites different performing artists to join his process and will show twice in Lausanne and Zurich different sequences. All four showings will be different.
