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.
