Closing Ceremony | Embodied Arts Festival
18. April 20:00 - 21:00
It is within the intersections of body memory and history that our bodies are potentially at their most revealing. Memories interrupt history and open up another possibility of embodied living, one that spatialises time and temporalises space. Hence, treating the body as memory and discussing the role of the body in witnessing authoritarian capitalism, memorialising the torture carried out by dominant socio-political structures, thus resisting the narrative erasure reproduced by the imperialism at national and global levels. Oyoun's first curatorial focus EMBODIED TEMPORALITIES offered a community-centered approach as a framework for participants to voice their experiences of ancestry, rituals, trauma, death, loss, and finding expression for experiences that are otherwise un-shareable, and often stigmatised in mainstream public discourses while paving the way for collective healing.
The EMBODIED ARTS FESTIVAL will present and celebrate the outcomes of this body of work. Join us for the closing ceremony on 18th April.
