seeing with ears

seeing with ears

“Seeing with ears” is a site-specific performance designed for the specific acoustic and spatial situation of the former water reservoir “Grosser Wasserspeicher”. It is a research about the human capacity, to develop a three-dimensional image based on the audible sense.

A blind performer, a musician and dancer explore the principle of echo-location through through palatal clicks (click-sonar) and recordings of bat sounds.

A work about the limitation of our senses and the unattainability of the other.
