"babbling – from body & motion to the mouth"

performative poetry

with chris haring, director and choreographer

back to the roots of our speech: back to the body. this class focuses on the bodily aspects of articulation in order to produce texts. furthermore, it is about quick, associative thinking, about speaking without thinking, dubbing and synchronising statements of others, and about "hyperlink-texting" (erratic shifts between completely different story levels).

finally, poetry should come from where it started: from the throat, the oral cavity, the flesh. because even babbling has to be learnt (again)!

teaching language: german and english

no specific requirements needed for participation

preparation: talking quickly without thinking.
