Dancing in Silence

4 screen video installation

Dancing in Silence explores the connection between dance and music. Collaborating with the street dancers Ruby Nguyen and Barry Song as well as the musician Heather Reid, this project investigates the dancer’s relation and dependency to music. Seeing dance as a form of personal language the project explores the interaction between the musician and the dancers. Asking the dancers to wear earplugs allowed them to follow their own beat, the musician had to interpret and respond to the dancer’s moves on spot, resulting in a personal representation of the inner rhythm.
