EMBODIED ARTS FESTIVAL
EMBODIED ARTS FESTIVAL - TRACING THE MEMORIES OUR BODIES HOLD
What memories do our bodies hold? What can our bodies tell us about ourselves, our pasts and our futures? We invite you to join us for an artistic exploration of these and many other questions during the EMBODIED ARTS FESTIVAL. We have 20+ performances, film screenings, discussions, and interactive interventions planned for you.
Using art as a tool we go in search of answers to questions such as: How do we break taboos about menstruation, about gender norms, about sexualities, about death and mourning? How can we collectively heal trauma? How can our bodies transform from an object that is a carrier of social constraints into a manifestation of thriving, living bodies? Where does hate come from, how does it affect us, and what path does it take from hater to hated?
Curators, artists and cultural practitioners have been exploring identities, belonging and embodied memories through diasporic, decolonial and queer perspectives as part of Oyoun’s first curatorial focus: EMBODIED TEMPORALITIES. This has been an 8-month research, archiving, exhibition and performance project involving 60+ artists. The outcomes, encounters and queries which have come out of the projects will be presented and celebrated during the EMBODIED ARTS FESTIVAL from 8th - 18th April.
Join us from the 8th April onwards for our digital programm of releases, live streams and interactive talks.
