A Mouthful of Tongues
In the performance A Mouthful of Tongues, the mouth becomes the theatre. Experimental vocal techniques such as growling, ventriloquism, tongue work-outs, dinosaur calls and more create a journey where many bodies and sounds are brought into dissociative relations. The body is not in connection with its voice or its sound. Confusion comes and goes and manners of communication break into one another. This performance celebrates the mouth as a potent channel where communication can be formed, expressed, torqued, destroyed and resurrected. We hear fragmented stories, thoughts and emotions of other places, delirious landscapes — of something that sounds like English but is not. A Mouthful of Tongues premiered in June 2022 at brut Wien in Austria.
