Hidden Architectures


Hidden Architectures is a new interdisciplinary collaboration. An immersive performance, the work features an original live score composed for dancers, prepared electric guitars, and electronics.

Concept/ Choreography: Saffy Setohy with the performers
Composer : Jan Hendrickse
Costume/Set/LX/Tech Direction by MHz

Hidden Architectures explores the connections and social knots that we make as humans. Driven by the interconnectivity of sound, movement & materials, it asks: What does it mean to be connected? Do our connections constrain us or liberate us? Are we ever able to act independently of one another?

Hidden Architectures is performed by pairs of people, connected mouth-to-mouth by amplified, near-invisible threads which resonate as the people fall, trace, and carve through space.A weaving of movement, sound, materials, light and environment, in conversation with and transforming each other.
