AEON

A Listening Movement

Since the 1980s computers have modelled the way birds flock, identifying three simple rules that govern their movement: separation, alignment and cohesion.

Aeon is a listening manoeuvre; a participatory experiment of sound, movement and group dynamics to queer and question what we think of as ‘natural’. Drawing on bird flocking strategies it invites you to navigate public space in a communal yet deeply personal experience.

As we walk multiple paths toward a future in flux, Aeon envisions the space between civic responsibility and personal consent; between soaring clouds of wings and piles of pigeon poo to offer a paradoxical, complex and ever emerging horizon.

CREATIVE INTENSIVE

In conjunction with the presentation the artists are running a Creative Intensive with a select group of local cross-disciplinary artists, thinkers and interested humans. This two-day creative laboratory will explore the ideas (bird flocking, ecology, queer theory), sound devices and physical strategies that form the work and participants will become part of the key performance team that present Aeon at Salamanca Moves.
