Listening Distance (performance)

Listening Distance Performance
Installation shot of set up of 6 chairs in semi-circle with headphones around a monitor.

A performance installation by artist Britt Hatzius in collaboration with Thomas Tajo.

Language: English.

Listening Distance (usually a technical term used to describe the ideal listening position between two audio speakers) offers an encounter with Thomas Tajo, who has learnt to echo locate, a technique of sensing things at a distance. In this immersive audio-visual performance, the audience dives into the world of acoustics, where hearing becomes another way of seeing and the echo turns into an existential communication with our environment.
