Movement and listening devices.

It is an urban sonic intervention for site-specific, which invites performative action through a sensitive encounter with the environment, listening and movement. In this, it is of interest to activate a change in the habits of perception, opening up a possibility of transformation and reflection on our ways of participating in the world.

A group of people begins a drift through the city. Through mobile sound devices, small gestures and actions, they awaken a new interest in movement. It is a performance that occurs at the moment of listening and that invites us to subvert our frontal and linear orientation, allowing ourselves to be moved by the sound. Perception becomes more acute, peripheral vision increases and the crucial action of shifting weight between one step and another, envelops the group in a joint state of being and advancing, which synchronizes and desynchronizes, stops and resumes its rhythm.
