Training the senses: Listening as Intervention
Since 2009, Davide Tidoni has created listening scores exploring the active role of the listener and their agency to act within an acoustic field. Starting from the subjective experience of acoustic phenomena, such as filtering and reflection, the scores highlight the interaction among the physical nature of sound, its behavior in space, and the modulation of sound through body and movement.
In this workshop Davide Tidoni, together with dancer Simone Evangelisti, will invite participants to explore and investigate their own capacity to touch, filter, absorb, and block sound when realizing the performative potential of the scores. Through guided sequences and improvisational moments, participants will experiment in new ways to approach sound and listening as resources for developing movement and body awareness.
This event is in partnership with iii.
About Davide Tidoni
Davide Tidoni is an artist working from the boundaries of physical, perceptual, and affective dimensions of sound. His work addresses questions regarding interactions with acoustic space, intersubjectivity, and impermanence. His practice also includes interests in the use of sound in counter-cultures and social contexts of struggle. In 2018 he published The Sound of Normalisation, a field research on the ultras group Brescia 1911.
About Simone Evangelisti
Simone Evangelisti studied theatre and dance with Raffaella Giordano and the Fondazione Pontedera Teatro. He has performed with different companies (Dom, Strasse, Teatro delle Briciole) often bridging diverse fields and formats: from shows intended for children to dance theatre, in-situ performances, and urban interventions. He’s also politically active and documents his experiences in this arena in graphic stories published in fanzines and magazines.
What is Training the Senses?
Knowledge is not only acquired visually at schools through language and text books. Learning involves all of our senses: we learn by listening, tasting, smelling, touching – and even by using our intuition. Through Training the Senses participants explore and discover a new vocabulary for all their senses and a new way to transmit experience and acquire knowledge. Training the Senses is an ongoing series by Marres, that avoids any division between the speakers, performance and the audience.
