Chinasa Vivian Ezugha: tongues

4pm, Saturday 17th April

Imagine a new space, a space of possibilities- vocality and movement. The mouth is the new theatre. RE-imagining space and the placement of the body in space, this performance will use the tongue as the point of entry into a new performative space. ( I may need to speak with you to expand )

Tongues is a one-to-one performance by Chinasa Vivian Ezugha, with each encounter lasting 5 minutes.

Audiences will be asked to wear a mask for the duration of the performance, and we will temperature check audiences on arrival.
