This season I am talking to artists and thinkers about the art of listening. In winter 2018 I spoke to choreographer and performer, Sara Shelton Mann In the winter of 2018, Sara Shelton Mann brought Echo/Listening Through Walls to Dock 11 in Berlin, Germany, in collaboration with Anya Cloud and Jesse Zaritt, and composer Pamela Z. For the podcast, we spoke about listening as a full-body experience. As a dancer, listening with the body is natural but a car accident reduced Sara’s hearing and required her to find other ways of listening. She shares how she listens into space, listens to her life force, to others and to the divine. Sara reflected on listening as one part of the equation of communication, reflecting on how our thoughts impact what we hear and how we interact.
