‘What We Are Saying’ by Public Recordings

 In Pre 2018 Shows

WWAS_Guelph-web‘what we are saying’
the radical possibility of a leaderless togetherness

Kazoo! is excited to co-present a special interdisciplinary contemporary dance performance created by Public Recordings Performance Projects. An intimate and expansive composition of sound and movement, ‘what we are saying’ is a performance that presents the conditions of bare utterance.

In an open space filled with chairs, a group of seven performers start a conversation. They begin by listening. Representing nothing but themselves, their words and actions gradually approach a unison where every decision is a group decision but no one knows what’s going to happen next.

For the performers, uncertainty is both the figure and the ground of their pursuit–to express how things are and how they want them to be different. Asking seriously whether being together is possible, what we are saying illuminates the radical possibility of a leaderless togetherness.

Saturday October 1, 8:30pm @ ANAF (32 Gordon St, Guelph, ON)
& Stick around after for a special edition of Golden Throats Karaoke!

Tickets: $15 General Admission & $12 Arts Worker/Senior/Underemployed/Student.
