Bryony Gillard and guests: Harmonic Anatomies / Wet Mouths

A polyphonic performance, a lecture, a puppet play and an improvisation jam, Harmonic anatomies/wet mouths 1 explores readings of the female (or feminised) voice as dangerous — a sound that is unpredictable, leaky and slippery, and which needs to be controlled or silenced.

Using sock puppets, slime, movement, hydrophones, vocal improvisation and digitally manipulated noise, Harmonic anatomies/wet mouths is a performance across the live space of the cinema and virtual space that overlaps immersive moving image work with live vocals, movement and sound. 

+ free linked improvisation workshop with Maggie Nichols on Friday 26 July, 10.00 – 12.30 at The Northern Charter.

Selected as part of the Projections open call.

Situated between writing, performance, video and exhibition making, Bryony Gillard’s practice reflects upon events, approaches and ideas that refuse to be pinned down or categorized. Through a process of both uncovering and layering influences, histories and conversations, her work attempts to create a space for genealogies of Feminist practice that are allusive, messy and entangled in contemporary concerns. Bryony has an MFA from the Dutch Art Institute, School for Art Praxis. Projects in 2019 include Slippery Bodies, Flatland Projects (Hastings), A Place That Fosters Us, De Pimlico Projects (London) and a major new commission with RAMM (Exeter).
