Edyta Jarzab – Joining the Resistance
In this workshop, Jarzab shares a set of exercise she has developed and used in Warsaw before and during street protests, that aim to amplify the importance and power of the voice as a tool within political activism. Participants experience and explore their full voice in space, in relation to others. The workshop will look for a possible balance between sounding and listening by focusing on energetic processes, play, improvisation, and non-hierarchic synchronicity.
In the framework of Sound and Participation symposium.
Edyta Jarząb is interested in voice as a bridge between the public and private sphere; listening, singing, and improvisation as a practice of social resistance. She studies the sonosphere of protests and demonstrations as well as organises sound walks, workshops, and warm-ups before street demonstrations. Jarząb co-creates the sound collective Critical Band Ensemble and the improvisation group SYRENY. She has participated in the exhibition “Post-peace” at the Württembergischer Kunstverein in Stuttgart, the Warsaw Autumn Festival with the performative group ETC, at the Sanatorium Sound Festival; she was the curator of the program “Sirens’ Song” at the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw. Co-author of “Warsound/Warszawa” published by U– jazdowski. She also cooperates with Strefa WolnoSłowa in Warsaw and the magazines “Glissando” and “Wakat.”
