The Ungoverned looks at how we can deconstruct normativity through collaboration, exchange, texts, ephemeral gestures and other languages. This year’s programme emphasises the importance of difference and diverse ways of communicating: the morphing of words to choreographies, soundscapes, dialects and voices.

For the first part of The Ungoverned, five international musicians have created mixes and soundscapes experimenting between sound, music and spoken word and responding to the idea of being ungovernable and defying norms. These recordings will be presented on WysingBroadcasts.Art over the month of August and will present collective minds exploring a positive present and rewriting the past.

The festival’s second part will be presented as a special live broadcast of readings from three international artists, writers and poets and will be followed by a newly commissioned performance from choreographer and dancer Maëva Berthelot and musician Coby Sey. Maëva Berthelot and Coby Sey will be in-residence at Wysing for two weeks prior to the broadcast. This unique and experimental collaboration between two active and engaging practices will respond to The Ungoverned’s themes of deconstructing normativity through collaboration and exchange.

With partnerships from The Wire, Tank Magazine and Noods Radio.
