UNDERTONE by Sidney Leoni

Undertone is a choreography that focuses on the potentials of our sensory perception. Stemming from the  interest to challenge spectatorship and destabilize the convention of watching performance, Undertone invites the audience in immersive dark space where mechanisms of perception other than vision are triggered.

In Undertone, the body of the audience is considered in all its potentiality to sense and navigate within an environment composed of a large spectrum of sensory movements such as tastes, sounds, smells, temperature fluctuations, touches, and ephemeral scenographies.
