'~' is an album of incompetant singing. Three figures try to sing along to a contemporary pop album without having heard it before. The performers are exposed through this choreographic proposition, as they move between hesitation, awkwardness, pleasure and glee. The echo of sociality - the laughter, the enjoyment, a mocking edge - propose an ambiguous proximity and distance to the listener. Fionn, Rohanne and Paul will be continuing their research this summer in a collaborative residency in London.
