Continuing the ideas set out in the series of exhibitions and events at Tenderpixel under the title of Unknown Tongues (autumn 2017– spring 2018), these two performances examine the relationship between language, voice and power. Negotiating the materiality of speech and gestures, they investigate the power of the disembodied voice and its relationship to other bodies and find agency in this relationality. The pieces deal with questions around the constitution of subjectivity and becoming an active agent through language both in a political or civil sense.
