La Pelanda – Teatro 2
Jukebox is a solo piece designed for a single geographic space: a city, or a region. Each version, composed in close collaboration with a local team of researchers, an actor, and a dramaturg aims to share L’Encyclopédie de la Parole’s methods and process and to perform the singular forms of speech borne by specific cultural and geographic contexts : “If I live in Rome, Prato or Cagliari, what are the different speeches that pass through me on a given day?”
By allowing spectators to choose which words are performed and in what order, Jukebox aims to explore the ways in which a community represents itself. What do we want to hear from the language we speak? From our own culture? Which voices will spectators choose to hear at each performance? How will they make them resonate with one another?
L’Encyclopédie de la Parole is a collective artistic project exploring the spoken word in all its forms. Since September 2007, Encyclopédie de la Parole has been collecting various recordings and indexing them according to specific phenomena that make up how people speak.
From this collection, including more than a thousand documents, Encyclopédie de la Parole produces sound art, performances, conferences, concerts and installations.
