Fettered to the Moment - this is how Nietzsche described animals as opposed to humans, stuck in an eternal present, without memory or the ability to anticipate the future. Ethologists, biologists and neuroscientists have recently proven that animals are able to project themselves in time, to plan their actions. But are we capable of that too?
The cries of crows, the croaking of frogs, the songs of whales are languages loaded with meaning. What do these sounds do to our bodies? Jana explores them with an artistic gaze: by entering into the materiality of sound, by perceiving the flesh behind a sudden cry or a meditative croaking, the sounds become a generator of movement qualities and forms. Sensitive bodies, crossed by the sound vibration, obsessed, let themselves be carried away and carry away into a weird universe which disturbs the gaze. They can be seen as human or non-human, as animals, as machines or something in between.
