(...) have (...) word  rile* reading group

We are delighted to invite you to join us for (…) have (…) word a bimonthly reading group for word dewellers. We will read from authors who write between linguistic and cultural borders through multilingual, multimodal and multi-vocal poetics. We will attempt to linger in the deformation zones of language: where words become strange, sounds shift away from their signifiers, and meaning begins to warp. We will read poetry, fiction and theory by authors Shahram Khosravi, Theresa Has Kyung Cha, Renée Green, Ahmad Almallah, and Tanya Tag among others.

[Performance] Time had Girl’s back, with Clara Amaral

Join us for Time had Girl’s back, a performance by Clara Amaral. Time had Girl’s back misdirects readership, just like the magician’s hand that draws the audience's attention to one thing in order to distract from another for which secrecy is required. Girl’s body, whilst seemingly disorganised, casts a spell of resistance, proposing another experience of time.
