Undertone (2010) Sidney Leoni

Undertone is a choreography that focuses on the potentials of sensory perception of the audience. Stemming from the interest to challenge spectatorship and destabilize the convention of watching performance, Undertone invites the audience to participate in an orchestration of fictional spaces. The performance prioritizes mechanisms of perception other than vision by proposing an immersive experience of different kinds of stimuli. In Undertone, the body of the audience members is considered in all its potentiality to sense and navigate within an environment composed of a large spectrum of sensory movements such as tastes, sounds, smells, temperature fluctuations, touches, and ephemeral scenographies.
