EMBRACED BY SILENCE
Duration: 45 min. | Language: Danish or English | Age: 7 - 13 years
Silence is always here.
It is here now – underneath all the sounds.
You can sense it especially when when you are close to nature, you can feel it when you are very close to another person, when you immerse yourself in tranquillity and let time stand still.
Often, however, it can be difficult to find silence.
Because there’s so much noise in the world, and we have so many things on our to-do lists.
But if you listen carefully, you can hear the silence.
It is here – right this moment.
Can you hear it?
We seldom pay attention to silence. But if you dive into it, you start to experience the world in a different way – an attentive way. Hardly noticeable sounds gain significance. It becomes more clear what is important.
We all wear headphones in the performance, both the audience and the performers. You are enfolded in a universe of sounds, where performers whisper directly into your ear. What you hear is integrated with what you see happening on stage. Yet, what you see is not all what the performance is made of. In fact, the performance is created through your mental images.
During the performance, while we all experience resting in the embrace of silence, we also engage with each other through simple physical movements. To deepen and enhance the experience of sound and silence, we use binaural sound.
