Words Live is a series of compilations of language based art works, brought to life by means of the spoken word. This 4th edition will again consist of performances by artists working with language and voice in various artistic disciplines.
Even more than in former editions, Words Live 4 wants to concentrate on reading as performance, on the narrative aspects of voice and text. In order, as much as possible, to reduce the distance between performer and listener, the artists and audience will be seated randomly around a large table.
Each person present will experience the voices differently, as they come from various directions and intermingle above the table.
The artists have been asked to choose, develop or adjust a work for this specific situation. For some works, the audience might possibly be invited to participate.
Due to the event’s approach, with the voice being the only source of sound, loudspeakers and microphones will not be used: Words Live 4 might perhaps become as intimate as a living room in which people are reading out to each other.
Words Live 4 is a project initiated by Suburban Rotterdam in collaboration with Perdu and Wallgallery and is compiled by Toine Horvers and Kathrin Wolkowicz. The project is financially supported by Stichting ter bevordering van Volkskracht Rotterdam.
