Netta Weiser: Radio-Choreography. Passaging


[Translate to English:] [Translate to English:]

8-channel sound work & 7-part series of A1 images

Radio-Choreography: Passaging by Netta Weiser explores the possibilities of acoustic translation of choreographic practice into multichannel electronics. It transforms the TONSPUR_passage into an invisible dance stage, resonating with sounds of dissident bodies and unheard voices.

This installation is a result of an extensive research process which included dialogue between choreographers and sound artists, archival research, as well as development of experimental recording and compositional practices. Through different modes of collaboration, we developed methods of transforming dance into sound, exploring the act of composing as choreographing and vice versa. The installation includes four parts, showcasing sonic adaptations of dance practices that were created by female choreographers during times of migration and resistance. These include a dance action performed in Beirut in the context of the Lebanese revolution in 2019, dance texts written in Berlin during the Nazi regime, an emancipatory choreography of hair performed in Teheran 2021, and a satirical dance performed in Athens 1913 as part of a revue theatre piece commenting on the First Balkan War.

Following former presentations of sonic choreographies on the radio, in dance contexts and concert halls, this special display of the project explores the transitory public space of the TONSPUR_passage. In this zone of constant flux, we attune to the emergence of new choreographies – between the movement of the passers-by and the sounds of dancing bodies, between different places and temporalities, between imagining and listening, remaining and moving on.
