corpo-escuta / a body as listening

We arrive at corpo-escuta / a body as listening aware of the long path trailed by Joana Sá to arrive at this show. a body as listening – resonant cartography of music (im)materialities will exist as a project of ambitious scale that includes a music album, a book, a virtual art installation complementary to the book, but that stands on its own, and a conference-performance. Still, for Joana Sá, attention to the body and to listening began much earlier with through this looking glass (2010), and Elogio da desordem / In praise of disorder (2013) – in a way, parts one and two of a trilogy that now ends. And what we have is a remarkable and idiosyncratic body of work where instruments take on performative lives, and by resonating, the performative body becomes an instrument. Challenging and (re)feeding our senses and extra-senses, corpo-escuta deconstructs certainties rooted in solid groundcemented by dualities – subject vs. object, self vs. other, control vs. uncontrolled, inside vs. outside.
