Synaesthesia can be described as “mixing of the senses”, an inclusion od an additional, unwanted experience. The association of letters and sounds with colours, numbers with space and other forms of synaesthetic perception have become common in art. In everyday life, this type of perception is seen as a disturbance. Dance in connection to music and other language registers of the performance functions synaesthetically. In the process of the creation of the performance, the author is interested also in other connections, such as how the sense of smell influences body formations and relations in space, and also in the relation between metaphor and synaesthetic effect.
Performance is part of the thirtieth career anniversary of the choreographer, director and dancer Matjaž Farič.
