There is something very touching in spending time to observe small details and figure out what else lies underneath the surface. To observe the hands traveling to each other, listen to a deep breath below the mask, and accompany one’s journey to preciousness and _______.
Performing Silence is a research project exploring how to listen to something subtle that is present but not shouting, a softness that is usually oversaturated by noise and loudness.
Two years after the first presentations in Nicosia (at ex Drive Drive) and the 8hour performance at the Cyprus Pavilion Anachoresis: Upon Inhabiting Distances in the 17th Architecture Venice Biennale, the team returns for one more performance in the frame of FlashArt in Limassol. On Wednesday 20th of September, the ten performers meet all together at Rialto theater in a process of exploring the density of silence as well as activating the silent and unseen moments.
During this 1h, you are invited to walk around, pay attention to the silence and those unseen moments, wait, take a deep breath, listen, and be active even when you are silent and standing still.
