Breathing.systems

— The Trinity Centre
R&D performances from PM studio resident Nik Rawlings
price: See event details

Information:

PM Studio resident Nik Rawlings (Ni-Ku) presents 3 x 30 mins R&D performances of their new research work breathing.systems.

breathing.systems explores fluid, mediated and granular experiences of gender, embodiment and neurodiversity. Using a custom wireless multi speaker sound system worn on the bodies of performers, they create a network of live voices and a communal sound body to sing through.

Temporal, relational and shifting experiences of selfhood, embodiment and gender are a fundamental theme in the work. Spanning Gregorian chant and Sacred Harp singing; club and spiritual, breathing.systems asks- how does a voice tell the story of its body when it is heard through a network? Without the feedback of others’ skin, where does your own body end? Growing new self-hoods and forgetting, destroying or recycling discarded ones; forming in relation to and absorbing others. Each performer/speaker in the work forms a networked node and a collaborator, a carrier and a community member.

About the company

Nik Rawlings is a Counter Tenor vocalist, Artist and DJ/Promoter. They often make work that considers experiences of remote networked presence, polymorphous bodies and vocal transformation. They have shown work at LUMA in Zurich, Guest Projects London and ran the MegaLast and AfterTouch clubnights at Dalston Superstore and residency on Noods Radio.

Performances will last approx. 30 minutes
