A sonic world full of disorientated beats & energetic voices

‘To Speak Light Pours Out’ by Kate McIntosh is a performance that immerses the audience in a powerful listening space. McIntosh mixes the work of different writers, composers and performers. She creates a sonic world that channels the energy of rhythms, voices, texts, and their meanings. With the physical pleasure and disorientation of polyrhythmic beats and the raw energy of voices that layer up sonic and spoken images, the tensions are both political and poetic, liberating and activating. 

‘To Speak Light Pours Out’ is an invitation to enjoy the sharp energies of positive disturbance and resolute possibility. It’s a shout-out to the lust for transformation, resistance, and new shapes of being.

"This soundscape as well as sung and spoken texts and the physicality of the performers move between playful and direct, gentle and confrontational.”

- Thomas Frank (artistic director Residenz, Schauspiel Leipzig)
