Across four performances Vanhee will speak ahead of one’s thoughts
to demonstrate the extent to which language is part social product, part inherited in terms of rhythm and tone.
Four performances based on a practice developed by Belgian artist Vanhee called turning-turning, where she tries to communicate everything that is simultaneously going on in her mind.. Rather than just a vehicle for communication, Vanhee considers speech to be movement, with each of us possessing unique patterns and characteristics when we speak. A technique – and, at the same time, a paradox – used to emphasize these patterns (and also transform and overcome them) is to speak ahead of one’s thought’ which Sarah will demonstrate asking us the extent to which language is a social product? Or whether there are inherent rhythm and tones generated in the body to direct one’s word-flow?
