Rosslyn Whytes - Deep Listening

maa 05/08/2019 > zon 11/08/2019

Deep Listening is a duet by choreographer and dancer Rosslyn Wythes and Canadian Brussels-based musician Julia Dyck. It is a performative experience that invites audience members to enter a state of mediation. We are interested in the conundrum of creating a meditation state that is both introspective and extroverted. This eyes-open meditation provides an external sensorial stimulus that lulls people into a visual state of deep listening; and over time, becomes a space for relaxation and restoration. Deep Listening questions the notions of “being present” as a performer and how can the performers compose instantly in each present, but passing moment. How does composition change when it is made without concern for its relationship to the decisions made before and the decisions that will be made afterwards.
