Try-out Body Tongues: Techno_Rage

Join us for an end-of-residency showing by Sall Lam Toro, who is working in Brussels on the frame of our exchange programme with HAUT in Copenhagen

Sall Lam Toro - Body Tongues: Techno_Rage 16:9

You're invited to participate in the ongoing development of Body Tongues: Techno_Rage, an artistic exploration led by __________ collective (Sall Lam Toro, suziethecockroach, Keiria Shishay and Warren Jones). This project delves into collective rage within public spaces through experimental somatic rage_choirs and rage_raving. During the residency, the artists aim to blend live sound sampling, diverse musical genres, and audience participation to create immersive experiences. They intend to develop somatic practices that encourage movement, activating multisensory bodily responses and fostering collective choreographies of rage. The goal is to harness rage's political potential to unite communities in movements grounded in solidarity, care, liberation, and profound longing.

About the artists

Sall Lam Toro (they/them) is an antidisciplinary multimedia performance artist based in Copenhagen. Their work evokes inter-relational decolonial, ecoerotic, cosmic and embodied manifestos that confront what they call “the hijacked body”. The hijacked body arises from the illusion of separability, and Toro often works with strategies to devise artistic interventions to unwrite and disrupt this body collectively. Through ritual, glitches, failure, dialogues with ecoerotic companions, text, resonance and e-motion, Toro develops poetic multitudes of body and radical imagination within anticapitalist, anarchist, and collective modes of liberation.

suziethecockroach (Aasa Silva) is a Brazilian born / Copenhagen based artist who works at the intersection of writing, music, and movement. As a writer and performer, she is interested in circularity and re-turnings. As a DJ, she is known for her fun & energetic sets at prominent clubs and music festivals in Denmark and beyond. Her sound consists of a blend of ultra-percussive beats, erotic club music, and fast paced rhythms the global south.

Keiria Shishay (1999) is a film director and works in the intersection between documentary and fiction. Her work is built through close collaborations across different artistic disciplines. By incorporating knowledge and skills from the wider arts field, Shishay expands the visual experience and lets it stretch across e.g. music, dance/performance and architecture. By experimenting with live-performances, movement and by setting up alternative screenings, Shishay investigates and challenges the media of film and its possibilities in her practice.

Warren Jones is a multimedia, international artist, one half of Prison Religion and founder of the Black Ether collective.
