It is a reflection on listening and hierarchies within sound. It is a landscape of singing bodies, sustained sound and soft structures. It is a stream moving through humans, materials and environments. It is words being shaped by forces. It is Oceanic by choreographer Marie Topp and composer Julia Giertz.
To listen is not only an auditory process; it sharpens and shapes our attention, a subjective translation of information. Listening is a continuum of relationships.
Oceanic is part of a body of work dealing with how political and cultural structures are embedded in senses.
