E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E

  1. Co-presented by the Movement Research Festival: HARDCORE and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council in 2010

    By means of choreoprosodia (the fusion of movement and prosody), the Phoneme Choir imbues English with heretofore unheard of inherences. Movement amulets, phonemic emanation, hormonal hymns, phonic photonics and detox, the lost optative mood, prefixing prosody to psychoneuroimmunoendocrinology, outright blessings and bad English are all called upon to re-tune, atone, de-delude and opiodize. Is English an inherently commercial, mercenary, duplicitous tongue, or is that just human nature? The premise of RE-ENGLISH is that today’s economic, climate, security and inequity crises are direct consequents of the sonic and connotative qualities of superpower English.

E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E is an operatic, town hall epic that proposes, with Thomas Paine and Martin Luther King, money as public property. Created by choreographer Daria Faïn and poet Robert Kocik, in collaboration with composer Katherine Young, vocalist Samita Sinha and the Commons Choir, E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E was developed by researching the sonic and connotative power of language (especially phonemes, the smallest sound units of language) and suggesting the ways in which these sounds could heal our current economic and ecological crises. Drawing on phenomena as diverse as the choral ode, algorithmic procedure, dead languages, the endocrine system, triple bottom line accounting, innate awareness and the town hall meeting, 27 dancers, singers and actors carry out a cosmogenetic redo as they treat our current inequity crisis with reparative tones and intentions with the body as horn of plenty.
