Pollution in the Chest II

performers: Eri Fransson, Pille-Riin Jaik, Nazira Karimi, Pia Wurzer
text and melodies: Pille-Riin Jaik
vocal performance, 7 min

In the middle of an exhibition opening without special announcement a person starts suddenly to confess their feelings in recitative speech. 3 other performers join in with their own stories of pain from time to time harmonizing with each other‘s melodies and thoughts.

The performance deals with silencing of womxn pains. It plays with the sterotype of ‚a crazy woman‘ and how it might get destroyed if enough of them are supporting each other voices together. Through creating a situation of intense focus and listening, the stories grow in relevance and become audible to the outside world.
