Across this weekend Cara Tolmie presents a workshop and performance as part of her solo presentation We Touch Talking the Hum featured in The Grounds We Tread exhibition. The performance will take place on Friday 10 June followed by a workshop on Saturday 11 June.
Cara Tolmie’s long-term project investigates fundamental questions about what it means to sing live in front of others, and how the use of the voice as a rhetorical, seductive agent might be corrupted and re-configured through experimentation in performance making. For her installation, performance and workshop Tolmie extends her research towards consideration of the body that enunciates and the sounds that accompany this singing voice.
