REHEARSAL

2015

Continous four channel sound and videoinstallation, 13 mins 45 sec.

Instructions for an opera rehearsal are being typed in a Google document and projected in a black space. The text describes a scenario which appears to be taking place somewhere in the room, calling for an awareness in the viewer's body: it describes how to train one's own voice as well as how people move and act on a stage, how their voices sound and travel. The text is occasionally replaced by or mixed with sounds from a live opera rehearsal, leaving the room pitch black, and the audience surrounded by voices coming coming from various directions.
