Oceanic is a solo performance and choreographic sound work by choreographer Marie Topp and composer Julia Giertz. It’s a landscape of singing bodies, sustained sound and soft structures. It’s a study of listening and of hierarchies within sound. It’s an encounter with the parts of our common body where we continue to perpetuate inherited prejudices against shrill voices. Oceanic is a part of a series of work dealing with how political and cultural structures are embedded in the senses.

Marie Topp (DK) and Julia Giertz (SE) met at The National School of Performing Arts in Denmark in 2005 – since then they have maintained a close artistic dialogue. During the last ten years they have been continuously involved in each other’s artistic projects as colleagues and collaborators, resulting in works such as Forerunning (Topp 2009), The Visible Effects of Force (Topp 2015), Sound as Touch (Giertz 2016), Shrill (Giertz 2018) and Liaisons (Topp 2018). Oceanic is the first work they co-sign.
