Özlem Alkış


In "pulse", the audience experiences movements and sound at close proximity: They share the performance space with the dancers, which unfolds around them in a pulsating and flowing manner. The performers, spread out in this space, take the time to find their inner rhythms and the common pulse of the group. The play of movements between softness, density and speed develops slowly, inviting the audience to see with their ears, hear with their eyes and feel sound, breath and physical presence up close.
