Expresarse arso, Tate Modern, Tate Exchange 2017

Expresarse arso

Devised by: Maria Luigia Gioffre and Giovanna Cammisa

Expresarse arso is a partecipatory study for performance presented at Tate Modern in London on January 2017 within the program Tate Exchange, curated by Central Saint Martins.

The study explores relationships between language, voice and physical tension of the body by operating mechanisms of communication which lose the shape of words and fall into sounds. Throughout the performance, visitors have been invited to record their own voice. All the voices have been then collected and played simultaneously while activating the movements of the performers. The piece merges the function of the performer and the one of audience in a single act of unison where the materiality of voice is enquired by the body.
