noish~ is a performance which attempts to be one thing. It insist on a discipline up until failure. A body filtrates noise through itself, intensifying within space the breaking down of all her becoming[s]. A feeling that noise is not a sound, noise is not a cry; noise seen as fun, works as a stimulus and a catalyst for a change. There is no I. I bear witness. Dance and music intertwine and all I see is a vibration of the shell, never the cracking.
