Two performers surrender their voices to movement and make a blast (Πάταγος). Words, music, and sounds become a body and compose a muted/silent score that blurs the boundaries between what we hear and what we see.
Unalike texts, which are not heard, songs and rhythmic asymmetries, equally not heard, lead the performers along a peculiar coordination of movement. Two separate, self-existent bodies create a single image without being assimilated.
With Πάταγος, Sofia Mavragani continues her research on the musicality of the body and the materiality of the voice. She composes her works based on a paradoxical equation between sound and movement. In Πάταγος, movement emerges as the exclusive protagonist through the elimination of every sound stimulus
