Vielleicht kann man nur sagen “Die Stille war voller Geschrei.”- Aber niemals: “Das Geschrei war voller Stille”.
Maybe you can only say “The silence was full of screaming” – but never: “The screaming was full of silence”.
Together with Bettina and Nikola we researched on the rhythm of hesitation.
We were interested to work more intensively with the physical quality and dynamics of hesitation focusing in particular on the element of ‘pre-gesture’: What internal organisation of tension and weight organisation takes place in the body before a decision is made and what visual effect does this process have on the quality of the movement that results from this hesitation? How can this rhythm of hesitation be made tangible?
In this video you can see a try out with contact microphones touching different kind of fabrics in order to create a rhythm which emerges out of little weight shifts and specific movements. In the video you see us getting more familiar with how the structure can work for us experimenting with what movements create which kind of sound and improvising together with the notion of action and reaction creating specific rhythms in the sound and in the movement itself. It is still a rough draft that we expose here and the sound quality is quite poor on the video but still we thought its worth sharing this step in our process.
