Sigaw, ______, (echo)

October 10, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Because so much depends upon vacuous speech, and so sometimes it is best to refrain from all human voice; because when we sit with ourselves, there is just air, just light, and this is how we will learn to listen—” writes Barbara Jane Reyes, Bay Area Pinay poet, author, and educator. In this performance artwork two Pinay artists meet to grapple with the distances of diaspora, language, and medium. They listen through the translations of voice and matter despite the intervals between sigaw/echo. With sound as just air and painting as just light, they come together as an ekphrastic practice to create, to converse, to listen.

Anna B. Gatdula, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of musicology in the Department of Music at UNC Chapel Hill. She performs with voice and music technology.

Venazir Martinez is a Filipino visual anthropreneur, and a street muralist, whose artworks portray realistic depictions of individuals from diverse cultures, rendered in a fragmented and animated style.

Audience members are welcome to stay for the full performance or to arrive late or leave early as needed.

This performance is being held in conjunction with the Hilabana: Espasyo Temporal exhibit at Duke University.
