Oana Avasilichioaei on the East Coast this September!
Limbinal cover

Poet Oana Avasilichioaei will tour Canada’s East coast in September 2016, reading and performing a number of times in Nova Scotia, adding up to 4 performances and 2 workshops in two weeks.

Avasilichioaei’s presentation, LIMBS & THRESHOLDS, is an immersive multimedia performance of poetic texts, involving layered voices and live vocal play, sampled sounds, effects pedals, a theremin, and textured projections of poems and images (created in collaboration with Jessie Altura). In a world where the political, linguistic, and bodily border is a place of strife and violence, LIMBS & THRESHOLDS explores ways of rethinking the border by breaking down the boundaries between word and sound, sense and resonance, original and translation, image and reflection. Based on Avasilichioaei’s recent book Limbinal (Talonbooks, 2015), the performance presents a series of phonotopes, in-between places of sound and figure, orchestral and in flux, generative and inhabited.
