How can dance capture something that is constantly shifting? This solo was created by choreographer and dancer Kat Válastur in collaboration with performer Enrico Ticconi and visual artist Leon Eixenberger. They developed an abstract environment in which a figure can be found which is transforming constantly. Here, the body reacts in its eerie and elusive state to how it is impacted by the digitally informed world: the various and fluid requirements and inputs from the outside require it to be changeable and adaptable. Through a kaleidoscope of movements and voices, “Rasp Your Soul” shows the diverse facets of a personality moving between the artificial and the organic, the animal and the human, the male and female. Voice and sound are essential components of this environment and act as a magical organ that extends performativity beyond space and body. “Rasp Your Soul” is the first piece of Válastur's series titled “The Staggered Dances of Beauty”.
