Dunkelkammer Sessions is a platform of virtual improvisation that explores the intersubjective relations of a dialogue in the distance, articulated through dance, performance and sound art.
The format brings together two artists from different contexts and locations, to realize a performative improvisation, using audio as the sole communication channel. Under this setting, the invisibility of the ‘other’ reveals the voice, echo, silence and non verbal communication between the participants, emerging as new semantic fields that embrace abstraction, telepathy and intimacy.
The series makes a question in the context of digital media, in 6 sessions, with 12 artists located in the cities of Mérida, Ciudad de México, Linz and Zaragoza. DKS is curated and organized by Gabriela Gordillo and Fernando Vigueras, with the support of Linz Sounds, Casa del Lago and DORF TV in cooperation with servus.at, Primal, CCD Radio y Radio FRO.
