collective terrain/s — April 25-May 4, 2019
March 6, 2019
April 25 – May 4, 2019
collective terrain/s is a collective research process into sounding in the body. How does the body open up possibilities for voice and resistance? What resonances in the voice and body exist beyond language?
collective terrain/s will culminate in two weeks of events organized by choreographers Jasmine Hearn & Tatyana Tenenbaum and Danspace Project Associate Curator Lydia Bell, including performances by Hearn, Tenenbaum, Tendayi Kuumba, and Samita Sinha.
“Jasmine Hearn and Tatyana Tenenbaum are artists who have made me think deeply about questions of perimeter, presence, and vibration,” writes Bell. “Along with Tendayi Kuumba and Samita Sinha, they are engaged in thinking about the ethics of how we gather, how we are heard, and how we listen. By seeing the work of these four artists next to one another, I hope to consider how private acts of gathering, sounding, and listening can reverberate in the public space of performance.”
A publication designed by collective please/denise shu mei will include commissioned writing by Amber Jamilla Musser, Nicole Wallace, Cyrah Ward, and Rochelle Jamila Wilbun, each invited by the artists as a witness their work, as well as documentation of the research process.
