ears to see

A dance piece for young audiences (8+)

You find yourself in urban surrounding, a city. The warm asphalt, the makeup of the city, is resonating and vibrating under your feet. Your senses are pricked like sensitive antennae. You feel around in musty soil, you smell coloured smoke and you connect to the movements of water molecules in the air. You listen to the urban environment with pricked ears: Who is speaking there, from the pipes of the sewer? Where is this mysterious language coming from? Why is the air vibrating? And who is dancing with us on bare concrete? 

After All Our Eyes Believe (6+), ears to see (8+) is Lea Moro’s second choreographic work for young audiences. Along an outdoor polyphonic audio journey, the audience encounters a series of living beings that speak for themselves. The piece provides an orientation system for blind and partially sighted audiences so that they can move through the performance independently. The performance will take place under various weather conditions: appropriate clothing is required. ears to see proposes a responsible and cooperative coexistence with our environment through listening.
