Booming and flashing. Bodies that hurl themselves into the night. Yet the space remains empty. With their new collaborative work Echoic Choir, composer Stine Janvin and choreographer Ula Sickle recall physical memories. They reference elements of rave culture and create an echo chamber that might entangle events abruptly halted by the pandemic. Instead of booming loudspeakers, pure voices – a choir that captures the space. As the group of performers surrounds the audience acoustically, physical distancing rules become artistic parameters; lighting effects act as memory flashes; and analogue­generated tones transform into sound that vibrates in the ear. An organic, sensuous techno evening that charges physical bodies with subversive energies and recalls the utopian potential of nocturnal exertion.
