Sits and Waits to Watch


In the piece Sits and Waits to Watch, a digital voice describes what is happening on stage while it gradually distorts and the initial meaning changes through multiple google translations. Sound and movement follow a similar path: starting from the sound of a verbal sentence, a rhythmic pattern is created, which gradually shapes into a new sound, while the body follows a process of deconstruction of the original form. The descriptive narration is sometimes accompanied by an abstract movement and sometimes by the performance of a realistic act.
