Arika describes this program as follows:
Sound as it is endured by space and the body: fifteen participants lie face down and pound the floor with a microphone one thousand times, each person choosing their own rhythm and intensity.
Can we use sound, repetition, and difference to personally and collectively engage with space, time, and labour? Hit Parade proposes that we can, through a simple activity for people to perform together: fifteen people lie face down and proceed to pound the floor with the microphone one thousand times. The sound of each person’s actions is amplified. Each person can choose their own rhythm and intensity.
Christof Migone is a Canadian thinker, artist, musician, and writer. He’s interested in simple, open-ended concepts that we can test out together and that expand on ideas of: language, voice, bodies, performance, space, intimacy, complicity, and endurance.
