How can we use sensory stimulation to enhance people’s experience of and engagement with classical music? Influenced by synesthesia, graphic scores, and multi-modality, BitterSuite works with a number of sensory partners, schools and artists to explore these ideas.
Awaken your ears, eyes, and taste-buds to classical music with ‘BitterSuite: Awaken Your Senses’, workshops and installations at NOW Live Events.
Experience their immersive work which take participants on an imaginative adventure through classical music. Afterwards you will find your ears are open to sound like never before. Workshops and experiences experiment with active listening through contact improvisation, blind-folded improvisations, and other sensory techniques.
At Wilderness (August 2015)
A workshop run by multi-sensory collective BitterSuite. Sharing their own devising practices in a practical workshop, the workshop will touch on the instinctual and naturally therapeutic character of sensory arts, mainly using partner work to demonstrate how opening yourself up within the senses can impact your outlook on life and develop a mindful approach to life that lasts forever.
