DIALOGUE

The space between

Ariana Martinez in conversation with Eleanor McDowall

5.00 pm 

Manifattura Tabacchi

language: English

Eleanor McDowall and Ariana Martinez discuss how audio documentary can express the complexities of personal history, identity, and culture. They explore the unique challenges of working in this medium, particularly when communicating across experience and language. In their work, Eleanor and Ariana meet the bleeding edge of translation and cross into territory where words sometimes fail. How can the audio medium help us to embrace illegibility and ambiguity, to accept that not all stories are meant for us to consume and comprehend? What is left for us to feel, question, and contemplate when we run out of words?

Ariana Martinez is an audio artist of Puerto Rican descent raised in various towns and cities across the U.S. mainland. Ariana's creative practice spans across audio and visual work in an attempt to understand the relationships between people and places. They work to reveal the landscape and built environments as sites of expression and experimentation while also recognizing and challenging geographic, social, and political boundaries. 

Eleanor McDowall is the founder of Radio Atlas - an English language home for subtitled audio. She is also a Director at the British independent radio production company - Falling Tree Productions.

In 2019 Eleanor's and Falling Tree production's piece A sense of quietness won the Prix Europa and the Third Coast International Competition.

Dialogue supported by AIRMedia and SACI - Studio Arts College International.

No hay palabras | To cross the water

by Ariana Martinez

26'36", 2019 (USA)

6.00 pm 

Manifattura Tabacchi

subtitles: English & Italian

No hay palabras/To cross the water is a bilingual personal narrative that navigates the confusion and beauty that comes from feeling in one language and speaking in another. 

The audio component of To cross the water uses the qualities of incomplete, distorted, and translated language as poetic devices; it hopes to make sense of the physical landscape and personal relationships that make up Ariana's family’s history in Puerto Rico.

LIVE

Representation or The Inescapable

performance by Fallon Mayanja

10.20 pm

Manifattura Tabacchi

We are led to re.write the present, to re.search for interstices to occupy, if not to live. 

 

Representation or The Inescapable is a dialogue outside of time and space about intersectionalities. Fallon creates a patchwork of voices and ideas using audio clips often interrupted by vocal sounds or interjecting voices. The audience is immersed into an intimate soundscape while the performer, masked to be neither male nor female, questions what is seen and what is shown.  

 

“I use other people’s words and/or voices to re-create my own speech. Blackness, gender, sexuality… New options are discussed for our lives, for our futures even for our past, inside and beyond our communities. Representation or The Inescapable deals with the importance of knowledge and transmission in the process of reshaping the world”.
