Jonathan Sullam


A performance combining dance, sound and visual design where the stretching of time, sound and body is the central element.

Belgian choreographer Isabella Soupart and British visual artist Jonathan Sullam explore notions of stretching in movement from several angles within the architecture of a museum. The idea is to question the accelerated rhythms of pop culture. What happens visually, physically and audibly when we stretch those “rhythms”? What effect does that have on our perception and how can the art experience be reshaped individually and collectively through this modification?

15 dancers/performers will interact within the space of the museum. The audience is invited to come and share, within a time span of 6 hours, an hypnotic experience.
