Invitation to sound & performace workshop by Hahn Rowe: Sound in performance.

Friday, October 7th / 3 pm - 7 pm / Španski borci – Culture Centre (velika dvorana)

This workshop is open to both movement based performers and sound artists interested in examining the ways we view and implement sound in performance. In particular, we will focus both on the materiality/plasticity of sound, as well as exploring and questioning how we negotiate, control, and are controlled by sound on stage. Essentially a ‘dance’ with sound - viewing it as an equal and permeating partner in performance. Through movement/visualization exercises and deep listening, we will look at ways the movement and sound can infuse and echo each other, blurring the dividing lines between sound and gesture.

Participants are invited to bring simple noise producing materials (paper, metals, plastics, fabrics, etc.) small and large, quiet and loud, to utilize in creating an imaginary sonic landscape in which to roam. Microphones and contact mics will allow us to scrutinize and transform sound, from micro phenomena to the all enveloping.

After the workshop, participants will share an improvisation in frame of Neforma at 7 pm.

Choreographic, dance or music knowledge is desirable. Workshop will be held in English. Workshop is free of charge.

Send your applications with a short biography to until 3rd of October.
