I have devised a score for three voices or three parts from material generated by the participants during a vocal improvisation at the end of the Telling Time Communal Making session at Jamboree 2018 at Dartington.

‘Telling Time’ at Jamboree, Dartington, June 29th to July 1st 2018

As part of Jamboree 2018, happening at Dartington, Devon at the end of June, I will run a ‘communal making’ session titled Telling Time. Jamboree is devised & curated by LOW PROFILE. The session is listed in the Jamboree programme as:

‘Telling time’ is a making session where a group of up to 15 people will work with our words and voices to construct a story of how we are, where we are, when we are. No special vocal skills are needed, just a sense of your h/story, and how you might tell it. We will do some voice games, and work in pairs and as a group to create fragments of narrative. Having built a score, we will present a short speech-choir performance. Pens, paper and encouragement will be provided.

I have made a set of participant workbooks which we will use to structure the session, to fill in with our ideas and material for our score, and to take away as a reminder of the event. The workbook includes quotations from Karen Barad, Jack Halberstam, Walter Benjamin, Trinh T. Minh-ha and others. There are sections titled ‘extra time’, ‘queer time’ and ‘doing time’ among others.

Breath Pieces at Tramway, Glasgow; June 23rd 2018

On Saturday June 23rd 2018 I took part in the premiere of Rosanna Irvine’s Breath Pieces at Tramway, Glasgow. We had been working together on a section over the previous months, ‘material and transitions’ a vocal sound piece or ‘duet’. Irvine had also worked with three other dancer-performers on other sections of the work. The company of five spent a week working in the space at Tramway to develop the live event, which combined drawing, speech, breath, dance, movement, actions and blowing bubbles and deflating balloons. We had an attentive and supporting audience for the first public showing, and I look forward to touring the work to other venues in the future. More details of the project and the ideas we were working with can be found at the Breath Pieces website.
