Luísa Saraiva | Senem Gökçe Oğultekin
In Hark! Luísa Saraiva & Senem Gökçe Oğultekin explore their love and interest in baroque music. With singing bodies, they build a relationship with the audience, turning sound into an experience and allowing for immersion into the music. You hear what you see and see what you hear. The singing leaves traces in space, traces of sonorous bodies. Hark! - Listen! Henry Purcell's Hail! Bright Cecilia and Nicholas Brady's libretto support the quest for an acoustic body that hears, receives, reverberates and echoes.

has an M.A. in psychology from the University of Porto and a B. A. dance from Folkwang University of Arts. Her work Hochwasser was selected for Danse Élargie Seoul Edition in 2016. In 2017 she was a scholar of the 1-year program for Artistic Individual Development from the MKW of NRW. As a part of her research she collaborated with Lea Letzel in the creation A Concert, with which they won the NRW Kultursekretariat prize Ground Support in 2018.
Her research for the residency focuses primarily on the relationship between movement and language as simultaneous meaning-making processes. There is an interest in reading and interpreting movement through the use of sung, spoken and written language and on the development of a speaking, thinking body. She will take as a departure point Henry Purcell’s work Hail! Bright Cecilia and use it as a physical score to explore a sonic approach to bodily presence.
