TransOralities: bodies, experience, performance and literature

TransOralities: bodies, experience, performance and literature.

January 23, 25, 26 – 13:00 - 17:00 hs (Zurich) / 09:00 - 13:00 hs (Brazil/Chile)

This cycle will be focused on deploying orality, vocality, and embodied practices in which the voice is explored as a basis of rhythmic ontologies. In this sense, the participants will delve into accents, melodies, the tip of the tongue, tics, gestures, clicks, smacks, timing, prosody, pitch, stress, as well as silence as different forms of exploring the voice, including gestures and embodied practices beyond the tradition of writing. From a Brazilian, intersectional, decolonial, and transdisciplinary perspective, a diverse group of thinkers and artists were invited to explore the voice as experience and a cultural phenomenon.
