HA | SHARING BREATH

A DANCER
BREATHING
AN AUDIENCE
BREATHING

THEY SHARE THE SAME SPACE
THEY SHARE THE SAME AIR
THEY SHARE THEIR BREATH

THEY SHARE THIS PERFORMANCE
AND CREATE IT TOGETHER

IN THE INTERACTIVE PERFORMANCE HA | SHARING BREATH
THE AUDIENCE CREATES A SOUND SCAPE WITH THEIR LIFE FUNCTIONS.
THEIR HEART BEATS AND BREATHING PATTERNS ARE MEASURED
AND INSTANTLY TRANSLATED INTO
A VISUAL BREATHING OF THE SPACE AND A LIVING SOUND SCAPE.
A DANCER IMPROVISES TO THOSE SHARED SOUNDS.
HIS MOVEMENTS WILL ALTER HIS BREATH AND THE AIR IN THE ROOM.
A TRUE INTERACTION.

HA | SHARING BREATH IS AN INTIMATE INVESTIGATION INTO THE ESSENCE OF LIFE,
OUR BREATH, AND AN ATTEMPT TO MAKE THE INVISIBLE TANGIBLE.
