Tabakalera taulara : voz Mal (Mal Mal)
Every Thursday this summer, always at half past eight in the afternoon, the rooftop terrace of Tabakalera will again host a selection of work linked to live performance arts. From 6 July until 31 August we will be able to enjoy different proposals that combine sound, the body, movement, choreography and language.
Maia Villot has prepared a selection of works by Rodrigo Cuevas, Maite Arroitajauregi (Mursego), Jorge Dutor and Guillem Mont de Palol, Idurre Azkue and Joseba Irazoki, Hipólito Patón and Vicente Arlandis, Jaume Ferrete, Beatriz Setién and Lisa Nogara, Luciana Chieregati and Ibon Salvador (Colectivo Qualquer) and Nazario Diaz.
Thursday, Thursday, Thursday,
many, many, many Thursdays,
every Thursday in July, every Thursday in August
… up on the fourth floor, up on the rooftop terrace,
under the open sky, when it's still daytime, when it's not yet night-time,
during that in-between where we know how we'll start but not how we'll end.
Something every Thursday.
In each thing some bodies.
Bodies dancing, bodies singing, making sound, vibrating, talking, moving, travelling.
And Frankenstein's wife, the picturesque agitator, Margaret Thatcher, Beyoncé, the human microphone, dancing for the sake of dancing, voices, words, watercolours, velvet, tribute songs, choreographies, actions and invocations, laughter…
All unleashed upwards, without a ceiling to stop them.
Voz Mal ( Mal Mal ) is a compilation concert performance and a listening session that explores the voice and listening based on cases such as the masculinisation of Margaret Thatcher's voice, the aural history of synthetic voices or the human microphone of Occupy Wall Street.
Voz Mal has been shown at the Secció Irregular del Mercat de les Flors, Antic Teatre, Festival LEM, Poetas por KM2, CA2M, La Monnai/De Munt, Secession, District Berlin, Librería Aeromoto, TEOR/éTica and Festival SOS, among other places.
