Options For Surround Sounds

This performance is an interactive piece that consists of multiple calls and responses and the creation of linguistic soundscapes. I will be urging you, as my audience, to respond to me, as your performer, through various volumes, words and sounds. At the heart of this collective exercise are questions surrounding who is entitled to make public noise in the ever-silencing reality of capitalist wet dreams.
