After the Voices #1 is a dance-theatre performance that attempts to trace and perform how the narratives/voices are interrupting, disturbing and reshaping the “subject” (individual or social) within the increasingly rhizomatic (interconnected) world.
The performance is the first part of Teater Garasi’s project that attempts to trace and perform how the voices (or narratives) are interrupting, disturbing and reshaping the subject (individual or social) within this increasingly rhizomatic (interconnected) world.
To a certain degree, origins of the subject and, therefore, communities, are built around the voice/narrative, and in the manner of the voice/narrative: because voice is intimate and extimate, corporeal and incorporeal, making the body and the social by making them resonate. As much as anything, the narrative/voice can tell us how the body and the social in common are built, interrupted or disrupted.
On the other hand, social movements are dominated by stories and story-telling, and narrative goes to the heart of the cultural interpretation and imagination, public discourse, and collective identity.
