Here a small text from Luisa: In a multidisciplinary practice including action, moving image, sound and text, Luisa Nobrega investigates the voices that emerge from the friction zones in between body and language, biology and culture, voice and identity. In this talk, she will focus in the relationship between the voice and the gesture – these ambiguous elements which often betray language, saying more, perhaps, than we would like others to know. The mouth, and the hand are peculiar, hybrid organs, which draw the boundaries between the subject and the world – in between body and language, biology and culture, inside and outside. The hand grasps, cuts, signs, hits, scratches, caresses.The mouth is simultaneously the gate of the food and the catapult of language – it chews the food, swallows the water, but also spells the word, let the cry come out.
