Call of the void, originated from French “L’appel du vide”, an expression that describes the sudden urge to jump off a cliff, crash a car or get in front of a train. It’s been said an urge to jump affirms the urge to live. These existential phenomenons give space for both darkness and hope, setting the tone of the piece in dialogue with the infinite and the isolated.
The dancer, sound, light and material dissolve their bodies and our senses. Inspired by anime sci-fi, Call of the Void uses an artificial and elevated expression to get closer to our innermost humanity.
Nicole Neiderts’s work focus on artificial expressions, textures/materiality, our senses, alternative bodies, whirlwinds of emotions and dance. Her pieces drifts between illusion and reality, and through them she wants to expose different sides of our humanity and extend our senses.
The performance is created in close collaboration with participating artists.
