“Dead Awake”

Imagine yourself in a space filled with sound like water in an aquarium. And the sound moves! It transforms itself, changes size, shape and direction. Is the music dancing? Or do you hear the dance?
The dancers are wearing portable speakers which makes the sound mobile and gives it a body to move in space. You are surrounded by an orchestra of speakers and six dancers carrying the sound around and amongst the audience.
The music is composed in close collaboration between the composer and the choreographer and the movements of the sound acts as a musical element equal to notes and rhythms.
