A dance piece for young audiences (8+)
You find yourself in urban surrounding, a city. The warm asphalt, the makeup of the city, is resonating and vibrating under your feet. Your senses are pricked like sensitive antennae. You feel around in musty soil, you smell coloured smoke and you connect to the movements of water molecules in the air. You listen to the urban environment with pricked ears: Who is speaking there, from the pipes of the sewer? Where is this mysterious language coming from? Why is the air vibrating? And who is dancing with us on bare concrete?
After All Our Eyes Believe (6+), ears to see (8+) is Lea Moro’s second choreographic work for young audiences. Along an outdoor polyphonic audio journey, the audience encounters a series of living beings that speak for themselves. The piece provides an orientation system for blind and partially sighted audiences so that they can move through the performance independently. The performance will take place under various weather conditions: appropriate clothing is required. ears to see proposes a responsible and cooperative coexistence with our environment through listening.
The performance has integrated auditory elements and selective audio descriptions (in German) that provide audible orientation for blind and visually impaired audiences. In addition, there is a tactile introduction and a walk-through of the stage space before the play begins, and there are assistances in the outdoor area.
The performance will take place mostly outside. Depending on the venue, the route varies and may include moving on grass, cobblestones, a few steps and asphalt. Hence, the wheelchair accessibility depends on the surroundings and can not be guaranteed in all cases. The performance also contains longer periods where standing is required. Seating can be provided upon request. At certain points, the audience will be asked to close their eyes and move along a rope. The audience will receive instructions via headphones, which will not be translated into DGS or easy language.
Each member of the audience can follow the performance individually via headphones, which requires the ability to move independently of the group. For each venue, specific accessibility requirements (indoor and outdoor) will be communicated by the venue. We aim at ensuring spatial accessibility in the best possible way.
