Marysia Zimpel’s body appears to act as a filter for a gradually intensifying wall of sound. At first sparse and flickering, her movement intertwines with the music, responding to its pitch and urgency. Here, noise is seen as fun - working as a stimulus and a catalyst for change. But the performance also needs an intense discipline - and for the audience the tension is palpable and enthralling.
