Live streaming concert's excerpt of "Voyage Voyage" from EKHEO and Hieromorphe (March 2021 - Transmediale CTM / Vorpiel)

“Voyage Voyage” is a personal journey into the hidden parts of oneself. Based on C.G. Jung's theories, we use the performance’ space as a metaphor of the human’s psyche. In this work one can access the unknown, the shadow laying within by means of sound and vision. It is an invitation of a journey into not yet integrated parts. Here one encounters the dark, repressed and hidden sides of the self. One can feel fascinated, attracted and threatened by its appearances: it is mysterious, frightening, calm, healing, chaotic, intense, masculine and feminine at the same time. “True, whoever looks into the mirror of the water will see first of all his own face. Whoever goes to himself risks a confrontation with himself. . . . The meeting with oneself is, at first, the meeting with one’s own shadow. The shadow is a tight passage, a narrow door, whose painful constriction no one is spared who goes down to the deep well. But one must learn to know oneself in order to know who one is.” (Carl Jung, Archetypes of the Collective Unconscious, CW 9, §§ 43–52). In order to convey this ambivalence, we want to create a sonic and visual environment. Sounds and visuals combine and create an invitation to dive into these themes through the visual and aural senses.
