Following on from ›Untried Untested‹ and ›Dark Matter‹ presented at PACT Zollverein in 2010 and 2012 respectively, Kate McIntosh returns this year with the premiere of her new creation ›All Ears‹ in which she sets up the stage as an improvised adhoc laboratory for a series of unusual recordings and acoustic experiments. Using everyday objects and materials, sounds are gathered, recorded and played back – the action of one part of the performance providing soundtrack, background or atmosphere for another. Along the way McIntosh – as combination curious scientist, mischievous dancer and eclectic storyteller – leads us on a distinctive journey through a diverse landscape of ideas. There are parables of human and animal behavior, fragments on crowd control and linguistics, jokes about politics and group dynamics, dances about bees and traffic jams, stories about systems, societies and social interactions.

›All Ears‹ is driven by McIntosh’s ongoing fascination with destruction and creation, sense and nonsense, the whole and the fractured - by her playfulness with the audience, and her love of theatrical images. With an off-beat humour and moments of lucid thought, the performance balances on the thin line between experiment and entertainment.
