Michel Yang ’Kore’s Project: Seeing and Hearing’

maa 26/04/2010 > vri 07/05/2010

In the Beginning there was Chaos, a yawning nothingness. Out of the void emerged Ge or Gaia (Earth) and some other primary divine beings…

I began with the intention to work with Voice as I work with the Body. As dancers, we concern ourselves with bodies in movement – qualities, textures, space, time, motion – but not voice and sounds. So I simply spoke. Speaking led to storytelling, which led to vocal sounds, which led to singing….Yet as a dancer, my foundation is the body, so how does the voice cross its research with the body? And what other story does this tell? Somewhere, what began as a personal research transformed into a solo dance creation where:

• Stories may or may not have any apparent meaning. We don’t really know but our imagination understands it. 
• Upon arriving to the Underworld, a realm where Body is of no concern, visibility is abducted and the body becomes empty. 
• The voice marks the absence of Kore. Yet if the Voice marks the absence of this Body, then where did the Body go? What is left of our sensibility?
And the story is still in process...

 

“When I first open my eyes, it was as if I were living someone else’s life. After an extremely long time this began to match up with my own life. A curious overlap this, my own life as someone else’s.”
- Haruki Murakami
