SONOTOPER is an interactive performance where the presence of the audience is central. In the work we get to meet "Sono", a virtual character who guides us into a peculiar soundscape, which comes into being through the encounter with the audience.
By placing itself between the audience, the image and the sound, Sono creates an interstitial space that plays with and challenges our relationship to technology and surveillance, to each other, and between what is present and what is absent.
SONOTOPER is an ongoing exploration on listening and sounding. An ongoing curious search for what it is that defines the "human" in us and the possibilities and limitations of our senses. What, who or where is Sono and what can Sono help us see?
SONOTOPER is a collaboration between choreographer Sara Lindström Lindhe and sound artist Jan Carleklev.
