Via the intersection of performance and plastic arts practice, Antonija Livingstone & Nadia Lauro stage a queer symposium for rare presence and endangered practice. From these social gatherings emerge a score for a series of études. A visit to a chimeric library who choreographs her caretaker kin. For the duration of a storm, we take refuge together in a fabricated nomadic habitat. This wyrd assembly of friends, guest artists and local newcomers join forces to practice and reflect on the dissident potential of the slow, the careful and other unfashionable polyphonic gestures.
“Polyphony speaks of the coexistence of a plurality of voices and sounds that can also be understood in a text or in an extra textual situation. The vitality of polyphony as a phenomenon is that the voices do not fuse into a single consciousness or drone but exist on different registers generating a dynamism among themselves. It is not merely a heterogeneity but some other angle at which voices are juxtaposed and counter-posed which generates something beyond themselves. Each one of these voices exists in an indirect dialogue with other voices, allowing other voices to add to a preexisting entity, a polyphony of reciprocal, celebratory and displaced voices, exchanges wherein all the interlocutors involved may become changed in their meeting.”—Mikhaïl Bhaktin
