Thiago Granato

The Sound They Make When No One Listens

Duration 60 min

In times of an ecological, political and personal crisis, Brazilian choreographer Thiago Granato explores the act of listening. Three performers delve into conscious listen­ing mechanisms as a way to perceive movements and non­movements, and unravel underlying structures of power and control. In a disorientating spectrum where sound and image sources intermingle, they amplify their sonic and visual sensitivity in order to extend the limits of their own bodies and the journeys through which they figure themselves together in the world.
