- Can you describe your mother's laughter?
CAN YOU DESCRIBE YOUR MOTHER'S LAUGHTER?PRINT THIS PAGE
"Can You Describe Your Mother's Laughter?" is a sound-installation, a dance-performance which explores the relation between language and bodies, memory and technology, intimacy and sensationalism.
The point of departure is a series of recorded conversations and interviews carried out with a wide group of people, in which they ask them to describe and discuss the bodies of people they are most intimate with. Danny Neyman and Hagar Tenenbaum traverse these bodies through speech in a fragmented way: Could you describe your mother's laughter? Her Sneezing? Speak about your lover's feet? Discuss the hands of your father? Talk about your own voice? They consider the peripheral "dumb" zones of the body together with the elaborately articulated ones - not only eyes, mouths, hands, but also skin, fingernails, elbows, eyelashes, toes, bellybuttons...
Studying, manipulating and mimicing these digital recordings, Danny Neyman and Hagar Tenenbaum weave a spoken tapestry of fragmented sound-portraits which we speak, grunt, chant, and deconstruct. As their voices work their way between speech and digital glitch, our own bodies act as a screen for and a resistance to the images evoked through words.
