Anne Sylvie Henchoz’s work is based on body and movement. For this collaboration, We Spoke will follow her lead to approach music through gesture. Henchoz will choreograph a performance that will include the musicians of We Spoke, at times directing them to produce sound, at times asking them to move silently. We Spoke, as performers, will move within a set that includes moving images and sculpture. Pieces by Aperghis and Applebaum, which We Spoke will also perform, will directly address the relationship between movement and the production of sound.
