There is no listening without intervention stages a number of listening exercises created by Davide Tidoni in the last few years. Through specific actions with a pared-down dramaturgy, the performers are asked to investigate the sound/silence relation, the interdependence between touch and sound reaction, and the body’s capacity to filter and modulate the sound diffused in a space.
The physical observation of the sound behaviour and its interaction with the bodies prompt a reflection on the active role of listeners and their capacity of affecting and interfering with the acoustic field, meant as a model of relational knowledge and reciprocal influence.
