Voices in the Shadow
SENTO offers participants an interactive sensory performance, in fact a collective ritual that will result in a vocal improvisation of a choral nature. The spectators/participants are first led into a room prepared for an experiential activity in semi-darkness, with dim spots of light, in order to exclude or attenuate the visual channel, which is often pre-eminent, and create a poetic atmosphere receptive to stimuli addressed to the other senses. The experience continues with a journey into one’s inner world, activated by aromas, sounds and tactile stimuli, which in turn allows the expansion of one’s imagination. These worlds are given choral expression through the emergence of spontaneous vocalisation, supported by an instrumental sound carpet. In conclusion, participants are invited to create a restitution of the experience in poetic form (through writing or drawing), remaining connected to the spirit of the experience just shared.
