During the performance Zakiewicz uses her impulses, intuition and assertion to create a layered, improvised soundscape, which includes sounds of drawing, poetry and musical pieces which navigates movement through anticipation, tension, struggle, surrender, submission, resolution, resourcefulness in the unconscious and eventually abandonment.
Siw Laurent invokes a state of submission and deep listening to the present moment; blindfolded, animalistic and responding to impulses in a wordless communication with the live sounds from the speakers and the energy emanating from the audience. She expresses the interaction through automatic drawing, movement and vocalisation.
Siw's response to these components and Zakiewicz's improvised soundscape is a reciprocal dialogue reflecting the essential and universal interrelatedness that drives the survival of community, humanity and culture.
