Expresarse arso

The study explores relationships between language, voice and physical tension of the body by working on exercising a way of communication which loses the shape of words and falls 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 the audience in a single act of unison where the materiality of voice is enquired by the body.

Devised in collaboration with the singer Giovanna Ylenia Cammisa.
