In To Selves is a collaboration between composer Esin Gündüz and choreographer Melanie Aceto in which both women dance and produce sound. Starting from a place of total synchronization, the performers gradually diverge, using music and movement to forge their own separate identities. The piece is intensely corporeal – two bodies moving and resonating in space. This physicality is emphasized by Gündüz’s frequent use of ingressive phonation, or singing while inhaling. Listeners cannot help but embody this gritty, belabored sound, feeling the physical effort of it themselves, and the subsequent relief that comes from breathing normally. The result is a visceral confrontation between anxiety and catharsis, an affect not far removed from Metté’s darker, more disorienting images.
