DO YOU WANT TO JOIN A FEMINIST CHOIR? 

Upon the presentation of HOT BODIES (stand up), his upcoming music performance around the XXth and XXIst centurie's sexual revolutions, Gérald Kurdian wishes to collaborate with a group of 15 women, trans and lgbtqi supporters on a FEMINIST CHOIR project.

Focused on the idea of a synergy between individual and collective voices, it consists in a collective investigation of some of the noteworthiest queer and feminist manifestos : Cyborg Manifesto by Donna Haraway, S.C.U.M Manifesto by Valerie Solanas, Contra-Sexual Manifesto by Paul B. Preciado and many others.

It will unfold in 3 practice based mini-workshops which will take place in August during Reykjavík Dance Festival :
* the reading of the texts and exchange of ideas, experiences, utopias
* the individual and collective writing of A SUNG MANIFESTO FOR HOT BODIES OF THE FUTURE
* the vocal technique and choir practices

The participants will then be invited to perform the Manifesto live during the HOT BODIES (Stand up) shows as a part of Every Body´s Spectacular, 15th - 19th November 2017
