Our own identity builds itself through sounds which could be natural, urban, speeches, songs, music… Each sound bears a life experience that shapes us in a very unique way. Our own body knows that journey composed by actions linked to sounds.
From there starts the beginning of our exploration: watching our steps, our breathe, our voice similar but different, our memory, what we have shared, the space, the place…
Everything can be used as a material to investigate, explore and research. It will then be organized or melted with our memory.
With «Opah!», the physical memory is the result of a superposition principle of sounds and actions composed by the memory of a past that have been shared either by communal experience or by a vocal sharing of it.
