Bocabilidades: Inflections of the Self

Inflections of the Self

Based on the “Cuerpo-voz-reflejo” (Body-voice-reflex) series by González Aktories, this performance explores the inner monologue and multiple dialogical drifts of body-voice-reflex. Enunciations are refracted in sound reflections that are able to manifest in other re-sounding bodies, becoming detours or noises that subvert, question, and intervene in the identity of the speaking subject.


Since its founding, Bocabilidades has explored the relationship between what is said and what is expressed using the body and identity as keys to orality/aurality. This a cappella ensemble works with minimalist registers of the spoken voice, incorporating expanded vocal sounds to expand its potential.
