Jolika Sudermann, Alma Söderberg: A TALK
Wednesday, August 29th and Thursday, August 30th at 7 pm
What is the melody embedded in love stories? Which rhythmic patterns convey distrust for one another? How deep does the whispering of our secrets go? What do the silences between our sentences talk about? We converse about a great many things every single day. Some conversations are life-altering, whereas some are trivial. And then sometimes, we speak just to hear our own voice. After studying various conversations from up close, Jolika Sudermann and Alma Söderberg have come to find that they are inhabited with an abundance of melodies, rhythms and gestures. When in a conversation, we actually sing and dance with each other. This award-winning performance, entitled A Talk is a virtuosic play of words and language, a composition of content. The brilliant duet slides within a blank space, arising between sensuality and meaning.
