Aay Liparoto with HOT BODIES – CHOIR

Multidisciplinary artist Aay Liparoto (1987, USA) uses long term performance as a form of research to examine the power in the banal. Their output is predominately video, text and performance, working with accessible technology, personal digital archives and DIY strategies to reflect on the mechanics of the everyday life. In both their solo and collaborative practice they are currently focused on feminist co–authorship as method for resisting over simplification of mainstream narratives of historically marginalised voices.

The HOT BODIES - CHOIR workshops gather queer, LGBTQIA+, and feminist individuals around writing and choir singing practices. In their frame, one exchanges experiences and ideas from the reading of queer-feminist manifestos (Scum Manifesto - Valérie Solanas, Cyborg Manifesto - Donna Haraway, etc.) towards the collective writing of revolutionary texts. These unique, polyphonic, and unruly texts, hence constitute the basis of a choral score, arranged musically by Gérald Kurdian and performed live by all the participants. HOT BODIES - CHOIRS is the third project of Gérald Kurdian's research cycle HOT BODIES OF THE FUTURE around sexual revolutions.

HOT BODIES - CHOIR Brussels with  Gérald Kurdian, Francesca Hawker, Marzia Dalfini, Ilaria Fantini, Clare Noonan, Mara Ittel, Tessa Martin, Aurore Morillon, Nina Andre, Robin Creswell Faure, Hélène Bernard, Xavier Gorgol, David Bernadas Casteil, Diana Alonso San Alberto.
