Personare Part I (2018/2020)
Performed by Patricia Langa and Anna Procter (2018), Patricia Langa and Deborah Emmanuel (2018/2020)
Dance choreography with Patricia Langa.
The performance Personare Part I examines the relationship between language, voice and power. Negotiating the materiality of speech and gestures, it investigate 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.
