Sound as touch
inter-disciplinary research of sound-art/choreography by Julia Giertz
3 August 2015 - 21 August 2015

Julia Giertz is a dancer and musician, educated at the The National School for Contemporary Dance in Denmark. The base of her current research at IAC is the concept of sound as touch. The ear is inefficient at low vibration, therefore the rest of the body’s sense of touch will take over. Her work with sound is intertwined with a choreographic practice, working with vibrations rather than movement, investigating the immediate physical impact of sound on the sensing body.
