Daniel Linehan, Hiatus - Listen Here: This Cavern

STUK is hosting Hiatus for the first rehearsal weeks of Listen Here: This Cavern.

Daniel Linehan and the dancers of Hiatus have spent most of this year amongst the trees in the forest, for the creation of Listen Here: These Woods. Now they return to the studio for the second part of the Listen Here diptych, titled This Cavern.

Listen Here is a dance performance inspired by the work of American composer Pauline Oliveros.Through her compositions, she suggested that true listening is a lively and creative act. For Daniel Linehan, it is a continuation of his research on the interconnection between species, nature and environment.

Listen Here: This Cavern is a continuous dialogue between space, dancers and audience. The performance is a quest to cultivate an expanded awareness of our surroundings and creates a harmonious interplay between the open and generous movements of the dancers, the ongoing vibrations in the space, and the audience.

Hiatus is the production company of choreographer and dancer Daniel Linehan.

The word “hiatus” implies a space of possibility, an opening. Each project of Hiatus aims to create an opening that fosters human-human connections in the here and now: bringing attention to our physical surroundings and our social environment, whether it is in a theater or in a studio or outdoors or any place we go. Bringing attention to the here and now also implies bringing attention to the urgent concerns of today, evaluating our roles in the diverse ecologies that we inhabit, as inhabitants of the city of Brussels, as travelers who create dialogues in different communities around Belgium and internationally, and as citizens of a planet facing ecologically precarious times.

Daniel Linehan is Creative Associate at DE SINGEL International Arts Campus 2017-2021.

Since 2015 Hiatus is supported by the Flemish authorities.

In partnership with BOS+, Hiatus contributes to the reforestation of our planet.
