Bint Mbareh PS/UK

Through field recordings from Tunis, Baghdad, Ramallah, London, and the internet to construct dilapidated collages woven together with long, melismatic vocals, Bint Mbareh will present work stemming from research into mourning and lamentation music. The voice, orality, and therefore tempOrality are central to the work, questioning the time (often signified by breathing = singing) that can be stolen from the wariness of every day to describe, witness, language, and signify the systematic killing and loss that results from the ongoing apocalypse caused by end-stage capitalism (with settler colonialism as its current symptom).
