Bird Throat   |   Isle of Eigg. 2015

Bird Throat is one of a series of performances researching the materiality of sound in site specific performance. The series is an ongoing question around the tension between human and nonhuman language, and takes as its starting point the premise that human language arises from the material imagination of place, matter, animals and nonhumans. How does response-ability in ecological attunement (attending to, attuning to the nonhuman), play out in the the human body as a place where thresholds between language, sound, material collide and might be drawn out; what arises in these gaps and yawns and might resist notions of repair or recovery?
