The performance Personare Part II is a continued investigation in the ideas of the relationship between language, voice and power. The addition of a second dancer explores questions around group behaviour and how an individual voice but also group agency can be found. Negotiating the materiality of speech and gestures, the work investigates the power of the disembodied voice and its relationship to other bodies and find agency in this relationality. The pieces deal with questions around the constitution of subjectivity and becoming an active agent through language both in a political or civil sense.
