Utterance takes audiences on a rhythmic journey, navigating entangled patterns of sound and proposing intriguing new ways to understand the relationship between language, sound and the human body. Winner of the 2017 Melbourne Fringe Best Dance Award, this work grapples with the layered complexity of form, creating an immersive experience for both performer and audience.
Siobhan McKenna utilises semantic satiation and rhythms to push language to the point of incomprehensibility, leaving us with pure texture and a cacophony of sound. At its core, Utterance is an investigation into the power of the sensorial body.
