Young Girl Reading Group 152: Folding City

Young Girl Reading Group 152: Folding City
by Dorota Gawęda and Eglė Kulbokaitė

26th of January 18:00 / Strandgaten 224

By pronouncing words out loud, emphasising the relationship of body to text, a collective body is created. YGRG is a sonar-social architecture of shared curiosity and synchronicity. The reading becomes a rhizomatic network of voices, suggestions and references. A vulnerable hyperbody is formed. It is composed not only of particles and molecules that circulate within, but prefaces, dedications, citations, appendices, illustrations, references, notes, diagrams and thoughts which travel in reverse.
YGRG 152 is a further development of YGRG 144 performance that took place at the Institute for Contemporary Arts in London as part of In Formation event series curated by Juliette Desorgues and YGRG 151 co-organised by Konstanet and BCC: season for learning in ARS, Tallinn.
