10 SAVVY YEARS
Why Do You Fly From Me? Listenings In The Echo Chamber
Another decade is closing its full circle and so is the first decade of SAVVY Contemporary. To SAVVYbrate, we propose a day of gatherings around and amidst performances, lectures and listenings in order to sound echoes for orientation and navigation of a history of voice and noise, of past and future power. We want to understand our own work, and our own thinking of, through and sometimes against the world, as a way of receiving echoes and sending them on, of being an obstacle in the even flow of sound and reverberations initiated long before our own breathing in order to listen closely to what was and projecting carefully into what might be. We invite you to listen with us along the echoes that have accompanied us since the inception of SAVVY Contemporary, to which we return for clarity and opacity, for solace and stirring. Let us listen – between sound and silence – to the echoes we have caught and sent further along, sometimes changing their initial trajectory.
