Chloe Chignell (AU): Poems and Other Emergencies
Poems and Other Emergencies is a solo dance performance at the intersection of choreography and poetry. It centers around a figure: The Girl-with-her-tongue-out. Through which an intensive female language emerges. Poems and Other Emergencies uses the apparatus of the theatre to coincide the female body and language, to produce to a sensuously situated speech. The poem becomes an event and the performers body emerges at the intersection of voices weaving a bodily and textual landscape. Poems and Other Emergencies positions the performer as a radical historicist, inscribing herself and the event, writing of this time with body and text.
