Instrumentalities | Common Grounds

Concert Lecture of the Sono-Choreographic Collective at the Grand Opening of the new Academy for Theatre and Digitality, Dortmund – 2nd of September 2023 & at the Impuls Festival für Neue Musik, Leipzig – 13th of October

In Instrumentalities the Sono-Choreographic Collective unpacks aspects of their artistic-scientific research Common Grounds. Scaling 20 years of hourly environmental data into 60 minutes, this participatory concert-lecture presents some of the methods developed for listening, sensing and understanding climate change from an embodied perspective. These include various sonic and somatic techniques that connect the planetary scale with individual and collective sensory scales of participants. The concert-lecture unfolds around a table that is a hybrid surface for discourse, policy, strategy, negotiation, communication and communion.
