Ecoute Pour Voir | Listen to See

A dancer, a stranger, and a moment of meaningful connection.

Created by Australia’s leading inclusive dance company Restless Dance Theatre, Listen to See is an intimate experience of discovery to rethink our perspectives on what it means to be human, and the diverse abilities that we all possess.

Scattered in a performance space, one duo and three solo dancers are equipped with headphones and an MP3 player, inviting audience members to share a three-minute choreographic exchange. Audience members may choose to experience different intimate performances by moving from one dancer to another, or enjoy the totality of a shifting and dynamic ensemble by watching from a distance—all according to their own moods, impulses and responses.

This programme is presented as part of da:ns focus – EveryBody, a weekend of dance which challenges conventions by presenting high quality works and experiences focusing on inclusivity, diversity and participation, where we encourage everybody and every body to experience dance.

“…This one-on-one performance taps into the voyeuristic nature of observing the exchange as part of a large group. Each audience member responded so differently, some getting involved in the dance and some watching totally entranced… I am excited by the artistic exchange and bringing artists together who have lived experience of disability but who are not defined by their disability. Strong messages can be sent amongst the subtlety of this beautiful experience.”
