A Project By Talia De Vries


An interest in the theory of photography led dancer and choreographer Talia de Vries to examine duration and stillness in her work, time and frozen time. As a nominee in the category Sound as Organized Time, mentored by Sofia Jernberg, she proposes an expansion of her research into choreography and voice with a slow-noise performance which focuses on the intense and vibrant passage between a still and moving image, a photo and its soundtrack.

By stretching and suspending the movements’ duration, she seeks to modify the structure and economy of time and attention, and destabilize our deeply engrained habits of experiencing time in front of an image.

At the Forecast Forum, SUN will take the form of a video investigation that invites the gaze and the ear to travel through different regimes of attention and mental imagery.
