SHAPING SOUNDS

A research project between Guy Dartnell, Chisato Minamimura & Dirk Puschel. The film is a record of a two day workshop to explore the link between voice and physicality, and the notion of being able to ‘hear’ through seeing, feeling and movement.

Guy is a solo and collaborative artist, director, mentor and teacher. His work spans the realms of theatre, music, dance, circus and film. Chisato Minamimura is a deaf dance artist born in Japan and now based in London.

She trained at the Laban in London before completing a M.A. at Yokohama National University. Durk Puschel is an acoustic analyst based in Germany. The workshop was filmed and edited by Handcrafted Films director, Paul Redman.
