HAUCH Sonic Footprint
with the voices of Neue Vocalsolisten

from HAUCH: a sonic horror show created by Marsha Ginsberg, Juliana Hodkinson and Katharina Schmitt

Skin without body. Body without voice. Voice without breath. Breath without skin.
HAUCH is a series of clown sightings in unregulated liminal contexts created by composer Juliana Hodkinson, artist Marsha Ginsberg and director Katharina Schmitt between Berlin and New York.

Funny, threatening, familiar and eerie, clowns appear as transmitters and receivers of social anxieties. Their painted faces obliterate identity and subvert emotions, amplifying inscrutability. Their voices modulate between exaggerated states of expression and detachment. Their deadpan hysteria embodies fears of the disappearance of all that is recognisable as familiar.

HAUCH will be shown in a filmed version on the website of Haus der Kulturen der Welt from 7th Dec 2020 (hkw.de).

HAUCH: Sonic Footprint is a public-space audio diffusion through 32 underground speakers, and can be experienced at Solbjerg Plads, Copenhagen, at 5pm and 7pm every day 6-12th December 2020
