ALBERGUE: experiences of shock and mourning

On Sunday 29th October, Hangar will host the first of two sessions of ALBERGUE, a space-time open with La Poderosa to bring together experiences of grief and mourning. This is a session as part of La Poderosa’s cycle Hacer Historia(s) V, in which Arantxa Martínez will present the performance From Behind All Over.

“Words have a government of their own, and it has nothing to do with the linguistic system or the management and care of language. Words are, among other things, an expression of life, an irreducible act because of their capacity to relate and to spread, to echo and to reproduce. Words are voices, even if they are inaudible, because they are bodies, intimately linked to the tongue, the saliva, the lips and the mouth. In this sense, the singular voice of words does not need a receiver in order to be communicated, because the voice is already communication beforehand. Before, in its becoming, the voice is already plural and connected”. Arantxa Martínez
