This is a documentation of a series of meetings/workshops I am organising together with Christina Karagianni
. Our intentions come from personal experiences and we seek to explore the silencing of excluded voices, and go beyond their barriers. We combine our practices -her practice lies on choreography and dance and mine on social interaction, voice and sound- in moments of Leeszaal
, an open local library, a public space of diversity. How can we engage politically with the exclusion of specific voices from the public sphere? We are borrowing methods from feminist groups and protest movements and vocal warming up exercises by Pauline Oliveros. For example, protesters would amplify the speaker's voice by repeating collectively their speech to make their presence visible. Feminists would create safe spaces where women could speak about domestic violence and make a dialogue based on listening.
people from Leeszaal and our environment, who find themselves related and interested to this topic. The produced material is being included in an audio archive,
