23/03/2017 - Studium Generale Lecture "What Is the Secret of the Noodle Soup?" - Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti

The theme of this lecture / performance will be listening, and the awareness of it. In what way a particular emphasis a ects the essential qualities and structures of our experience. About literally listening to space, sounds, body, thoughts and other people. About abstract listening, listening to your imagination or inner urge.

Do you have a choice in that sense? Or are the accents in listening often of an unconscious nature? How does that a ect you in your own life and decision making? People who listen to each other have more power together. The noodle secret re ects on the listening and being heard in the sensory, physical and political association. The physical approach, phenomenology, picture, sound and equipment are equally important in Ferragutti’s research. To invite the visitor to compose, listen and imagine the elements of space, time and concentration.
