Snow, Teeth, Vowels

Infrasonica [Voicing abstraction/Wave #9]

This series of poems and audio pieces is a result of the collaboration between Danae Io and Stathis Gourgouris from 2021 to now. In the works, the de-industrialized city of Thebes acts as a stage to consider the violence induced by the formation and maintenance of a national identity. Moving between the contemporary realities of Thebes and its dense mythical histories, the poems overlay multiple sites of extraction. This piece is part of a larger project, alongside the short films Sprouts of a dragon’s teeth (9 min, 2023) and Seven Types of Dust (12 min, 2023).
