Dear friends of Cabinet,
Please join us for "Ventriloqua," a performance by Aura Satz and Dorit Chrysler.
Performance / "Ventriloqua," with Aura Satz and Dorit Chrysler
Date: Wednesday, 2 May 2012, 7–8 pm
Location: Cabinet, 300 Nevins Street, Brooklyn (map and directions here)
FREE. No RSVP necessary
"Ventriloqua" is a duet in which Aura Satz, playing the electromagnetic waves of a pregnant body, is joined by Dorit Chrysler on the theremin. Referencing ventriloquism in its literal sense of "belly speaking," the performance turns the pregnant body into a musical instrument, an antenna, and a medium through which a pre-verbal, pre-vocal otherworldly voice is transmitted. Chrysler's theremin will create spectacular wave flames as its music triggers the flame alphabet of a Rubens' tube, while a Chladni plate will turn the acoustics into the uncodified language of sound figures.
