A or B, either-or, left or right. Binarity assumes symmetries and creates counter-positions. What happens when these are reinforced or dissolved? This new scope disrupts habitual bodily experiences and reveals simultaneously how subjectively we perceive the world.
With this audiovisual composition, Steffi Weismann draws from her long term intermedial practice that employs amplified objects and performative music. Voices and actions are quadraphonically spatialized and connect tactile processes with hearing and seeing. Initially, visitors* move individually through an interactive route until they take a seat on one of the two sides of the audience area. In the live situation, the combination of text, sound and image opens up real and imaginary spaces. The performance revolves around changing perspectives and the corporeal presence of the audience and performers.
