Fragment of APHASIC READINGS, in collaboration with voices of Genetic Choir and Tamara van Scheppingen, performed at SANDBERG Graduation Show 2017.
These readings are a play between a disordered voice and her surrounding. The play begins with the voice of a woman with aphasia. The voice of the woman speaks. She describes the space that surrounds her. She repeats her herself, hesitates. Other voices appear and echo the voice of the speaking woman. Seven voices circle around in space and interact. The interaction shifts between the voices supporting the woman in her speaking by softening her language disorder, and the voices exploiting the voice of the woman, by highlighting its fragility and absence.
