With a lot of big tears

This performance is mostly a vocal moment, that takes its roots in water, tears and emotions. It’ composed by a spoken-word lecture, a vocal improvisation and a song. I use a microphone and a looper for those matters. I perform in an installation made of videos and a printed fabric on which one can read the poem. Here, the textual and the poetical are the channels for tears to flow. The voice unfolds inside of a single body. Through the sonic immersion, I try to honor the watery in any forms.

About the artist

Mathilde Gaugué

Geneva, Switzerland

My practice can be understood as a proposition to create a space-time where the violent-normative split of stage and audience breaks down and where healing of trauma can happen.
