Song Sing Soil explores the permeability between shapelessness and form, between the realms of living and dying, between meaning-making and pulling it apart. The performance – a choreography for three performers – slowly unfolds around a specially conceived song that drifts between different mindsets, tones, voices and frequencies with a soundtrack that fluctuates between fierce instructions directed to the listener, silent moments, tender melodies and intimate musings. The performers’ movements respond to this soundscape, supporting the words with their bodies and gazes.
Song Sing Soil makes a plea for us to slow down, to stay with the in-betweenness, and to expand our capacity for feeling and listening.
