Issue Project Room: Nomadic Signals - Crucial Language
Event by Issue Project Room.
Thursday, November 12th, 2020 Suzanne Fiol Curatorial Fellow Leyya Tawil presents “Crucial Language / Dirar Kalash & Jamal R. Moore,” her third program in the NOMADIC SIGNALS series.
“Crucial Language” places the work of Kalash (Haifa, Palestine) and Moore (Baltimore, US) in conversation through performance and discussion. Both artists are committed to practices that negotiate sonic language on behalf of freedom, healing, and intervention. Their solo performances on this program vibrate into the struggle. In a conversation led by Tawil, Kalash and Moore look for parallels in their Indigenous, Black and international music legacies; discussing what they have found along their path. “Crucial Language” is an invocation and reflection on unity as 2020 comes to a close.
NOMADIC SIGNALS is a vessel for sonic performance operating in what Tawil refers to as the “diasporic imaginary,” a description of how sounds change in the diaspora: how they tether to their environment, accumulate, synthesize, and adapt.
