Journey Through the Senses: LIVE Piano and Ballet.

In this Piano, Choreography & Lights Concert we explore the nature of Synaesthesia, blending senses and perceptions, when music & sound is reflected in gestures, movements and coloured lights. We embrace diversity of perceptions and creativity. Neuroscientists Ramachandran & Hubbard consider Synaesthesia a “window into perception, thought and language”, it helps us understand how senses interact and influence our perception and emotions.

Zoe Marinello-Kohn is a professional ballet dancer from San Diego, US, choreographer, actor, artist and dance instructor. She is a poly synesthete, experiencing multiple types of synesthesia and her unique perceptions often influence her creative work. Zoe’s art is inspired by self exploration and a drive to understand the reaches of consciousness. “As If Dancing Through Watercolors“. 

Dr Svetlana Rudenko www.svetlana-rudenko.com is a concert pianist and researcher on Synaesthesia and Multisensory design for AR & VR, Technological University Dublin. 

Sterling Baldwin is an lighting engineer and programmer, who worked with software on Climate change research, US.
