concept text

Untitled (Unborn)

During the performance my body or rather the baby inside me acts as an instrument.

A hyper sensitive microphone (the Xth sense by Marco Donnarumma) is attached to my belly. It picks up the sounds of my baby inside me, its movements and its heartbeat. This triggers responses in a custom-made wearable from vibration actuators. The wearable is attached to the belly of a member from the audience. The sounds from the baby are further used for a specific soundscape accompanying the performance.
