What happens to conversation in your guts and your bowels?

c.along #1 Corporealation

Jess Arndt

September 11th, 2014

7pm — 10pm

ccap / studio, Körsbärsvägen 9, Stockholm

On Thursday September 11th 2014, 15 people participated in c.along #1 by Jess Arndt, fiction writer based in Brooklyn / Los Angeles. For three hours, performers of c.along #1 Corporealation explored the body as a container and language as body.

We talked to elbows, through guts and in sacrums; grew bigger and more unruly. Through writing as a corporeal experience, flesh translations, and gross metaphors, our bodies became other bodies that were our bodies – excessive, resisting description, profuse.

Oceans of Loving is an audial documentation and a sound composition by Moa-Lina Croall. Based on a 2,5 hour recording of the corporeal writing exercises performed during c.along #1, Croall has abstracted and experimented with samples and generated an audial work; in itself a choreography. No instruments, bass or drums have been added, but are instead concrete sounds from the recordings that have been manipulated. Pens being clicked and papers folded; steps on the floor; sighs; coughing, and pencil strokes — pitched, delayed and reverbed into a techno sequence.

Choreography: Anastasios Logothetis, Andreas Lindholm, Chris Riddselius, Elin Magnusson, Frédéric Gies, Hanna Wildow, Johanna Gustavsson, Jess Arndt, Kim Einarsson, Litia Perta, Marcus Baldemar, Martin Falck, Olof Dreijer, Sara Kaaman and Ulrika Gomm. Composition: Moa-Lina Croall
