This workshop’s opening to the public will look at the tongue as a new type of theatre space, participants having explored with Vivian their mouths and voices in a series of playful activities aimed at broadening their vocal spectrum.

The voice as a space, a source, a vision, an object, or a place for incorporation. With or without words, with or without understanding, from other levels of consciousness…, how the body responds to the voice, how to respond to various languages, songs, tones…

Vivian Chinasa Ezugha

Vivian Chinasa Ezugha is a British artist of Nigerian origin, who lives and works in Hampshire. Her interdisciplinary practice encompasses performance, film and drawing. She is interested in history and how it is represented in everyday life. For her, performance is an embodiment of past, present and future experiences. Born in Nigeria, Enugu State, in 1991, Ezugha makes work that connects her to her cultural heritage and questions about her identity as a black woman living in England. A graduate of Aberystwyth University School of Art and a Masters in Creative Performance from Goldsmiths, Ezugha’s work has been presented across Europe, America and the UK, including SPILL Festival, Performance Space, In Between Time Festival, ECOS, Songs for President and Rapid Pulse International Performance Art Festival. Vivian is also the founder of Live Art in Wymondham, a series of one-day, site-specific events that have brought emerging artists working in live art to rural Norfolk. She is currently a PhD student at the University of Exeter and a research associate at the Centre for Contemporary Art Derry Londonderry. She is also co-director of the Live Art Development Agency (LADA) in London.

THE NEXT PERFORMANCE ART GENERATION

Since several years, visual arts schools in French-Speaking Belgium dedicate part of their curriculum to live art: a response to the new dynamics of these practices in the professional field. One can see new generations of artists appearing, taking over the Belgian and international scenes of performance art, with individual or collective works, multiplying collaborations… They don’t make performance art like their elders, they invent new forms, which need new showing spaces.

Partners

A project of ENSAV-La Cambre, in partnership with erg and in corealisation with Studio Thor. Thanks to the suggestions from Le 75, ARBA/ESA (ISAC), Arts2, Beaux-Arts de Liège, Académie Beaux-Arts Tournai. In collaboration with the Wallonia-Brussels Center (Paris). With the support of FiPA-ESA (Financing of artistic projects in Higher Artistic Education schools) of the Ministry of Higher Education of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.
