COOP ~ Sotto Voce: Tactics, Signals and Slips of Desire from Month to Month

Seminar 2: 26 - 29 January 2020

Voice prints

This week gravitates around the different signals of the body in relation to voice and desire.

Where can voices be located? How is speech an utterance of reading the extensions of the self? The gathering starts with a discussion on the previous meeting and readings. We continue the engagement with June Jordan and read a new text by Quinn Latimer 'Q di Quadro or, My Body, Her Refrain (It Comes Back)'.

Arnisa is present for the entire coop and Geo joins on the 28. When Geo joins we create specific exercises in language and embodiment. 

Lastly, we will be doing face to face meetings.


Seminar 1: 1-4 December 2019 

I’ll be your mirror

Poetry, dreams and collective experiences become a red thread of this encounter.

Geo will be present for the entire DAI week, while Arnisa and Sara on the 3rd and 4th. Activities will include collective body and voice exercises gearing us up for communication with presence and absence, close-readings of poetry, dream voices and deep listening.  Sotto Voce as different scales of signalling, through space and time, with the sea as our conduit. 

Please bring a portable mirror, as well as a new notebook for journaling in this class, and wear comfortable clothing to move around in.
