Kate MacGarry | The Bandstand, Arnold Circus E2 7JS
Outdoor performance - no booking required (25 min performance)
Sunday 1st August — 2pm
Taking as a whole Shouting in Whispers, is a performance, that uses found materials, songs and conversations performatively collaged material together to create recurring motifs that bounce around histories to ask questions about individual and collective agency within global social and political events whilst simultaneously exposing their reoccurring and cyclical nature.
Through the work, Cammock asks us to consider how we use language to define situations, settings politics and structures, and how this affects where we sit within the political and social spaces we inhabit. AS her stories build through fragments of different voices, the artist simultaneously suggests that history is not as distant as it may appear sonf asks the viewer how they are feeling, what they think about current situations - ultimately saying: “I have a role in this, as I believe we all do”.
