ventriloqua

Ventriloqua, was a beautiful performance at Cabinet in Brooklyn that I participated in as an instrument, an antenna, and a medium, nothing less, nothing more. I was 10 months pregnant then: "Ventroliqua," a duet in which Aura Satz, playing the electromagnetic waves of a pregnant body (mine for this one performance), is joined by Dorit Chrysler on the theremin. Referencing ventriloquism in its literal sense of “belly speaking,” the performance turns the pregnant body into a musical instrument, an antenna, and a medium through which a pre-verbal, pre-vocal otherworldly voice is transmitted. Chrysler’s theremin will create spectacular wave flames as its music triggers the flame alphabet of a Rubens’ tube, while a Chladni plate will turn the acoustics into the uncodified language of sound figures.
