Disembodied Voices: live performance by Julia Kollewe

About

‘It is not the role of new art to gently massage the ears.' James Clarke Harold Pinter's radio play Voices was produced for the BBC in 2005 with music by James Clarke. It is a haunting symphony and testament to the pain of human suffering, set within an analysis of the cruelty and violence in human systems of power. Torture, rape, punishment, abandonment — thoughtfully humane and geo-politically aware, Pinter's highly politicized work is as relevant today as ever. ‘We both walked together into hell. Not just my hell, or his hell, but the hell that we all share here and now.' Harold Pinter The radio play is translated by Julia Kollewe into Disembodied Voices, a series of free evening performances where the audience are the actors and the moral indictment is comprehensive. Masterminding a show of lights and sound, Kollewe invites guests to take a part in creating a physical and emotional presence for Pinter & Clarke's radio play. ‘Light and sound create a sculptural space in which the virtual becomes physical.' Julia Kollewe Disembodied Voices is Julia Kollewe's first solo show since graduating from BA Drawing at Camberwell College of Art in summer 2009. Kollewe is a performing and video artist, and freelance journalist for the Guardian.
