unmute is a dance concert by choreographer Keren Levi in collaboration with composer Yannis Kyriakides and will be performed by 3 dancers and 2 musicians of the percussion ensemble Slagwerk Den Haag. They offer dance, live music and a mesmerizing soundscape of digitally edited voices.
You hear words and exclamations in the different languages of the performers, universal cries, snippets from audio archives of extinct languages and computer generated voices- all digitalized and detached from their physical origin. unmute emphasizes the value of each voice and touches upon the disturbing development where voices are silenced by means of a perverted employment of the freedom of speech.
