Have you ever thought what dance sounds like? What would the duet of a dancer and a musician sound like? 

This course, arranged in collaboration between Zodiak and International Cultural Centre Caisa, investigates the possibilities of simultaneous performance by a musician and a ‘sound dancer’ using the Soiva liike method. The method is based on new sensory and sound technologies that are used to produce sound out of movement and turn the dancer into an instrument that can also perform as an active kinetic composer.

The course examines simultaneous performance by a ‘sound dancer’ and a musician using a method where the dancer engages in a dialogue of music and motion with the musician. Participants may register for the course as dancers or musicians. No further experience of playing a musical instrument is required from dancers. The course approaches motion through the practical history of each individual body; all forms of dance and physical performance are potential angles of approach. Previous experience of musical improvisation is required from musicians, who are invited to participate with their own instruments, starting from their own cultural and musical histories.

Both dancers and musicians are invited to participate on the course. The course is open for dance and music professionals and advanced hobbyists.
