Synopsis

SØMA takes place at the intersection between video and sound design and is composed of two scenic elements: a screen with a 4:3 ratio and a group of tables. On the screen, the spectator witnesses the questioning of an inert object – a relic – in a dismembered and voiceless court room. The rituals of this static court serve as the departure point for a soundtrack of synthetic sounds created in real time by a group of adolescents, whose deafness operates an insurmountable biological distance, engaging with the images through a repertoire of sound gestures.
