HANNAH (50 min, 2017) is a hybrid between concert, performance and installation in which the whole space is played as one polyphonic audiovisual instrument. It is an elaborate spatial composition by the world-renowned Norwegian artist group, Verdensteatret, that provokes a state of absorption in an immersive audiovisual space. Inspired by the immense span and gradual unfolding of geological time, the material acts as a kind of sedimentation process, drawing attention to gentle transformations and the way physical objects can affect their surroundings over extremely long time spans. From a human perspective, the material unfolds from fixed attention towards exhaustion – in the act of observing slow changes. HANNAH will be performed multiple times throughout Sonic Acts in Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
