Silver Venus’ world resists fixity. Like a teeming army of herring she continuously flip-flops and plops-out shimmery clumps of progenies. This time, she is expressing her sound. Listen for her cleavage. It cuts between the memory of an occasion spent together and an occasion that never materialized. She revisits the music and movements of her friends, laughing like clams with their non self-flagellating tongues. She wants to find a way to be in the same place again and to touch ear to ear. She is alone, but she is teeming.

Working from the choreographic score for the live ensemble piece Silver Venus (2018), Andrea Spaziani and Matt Smith will build the sonic environment and movements of a dance for headphones. Presented against a cinematic landscape of Silver Venus scenes by Alejandro Fargosonini.
