A performance by SCHPANDO appropriating the words and movements of A. Spaziani

in TRIALOGUE with Analia Sirabonian and Abi Tariq

THURSDAY, JULY 28th, 2016, 7pm-8:30 @ Uferstudios, Studio 14, in Berlin, GE

Superficie habitáculo;

    meeting place.

Cornering you.


La piel del intercambio
    In between Skin 1 and 2


In distracted times of overproduction

    (I’m distracted by overproduction)


I want to talk about it but there are no sticky bits


    nothing that references the word bank

or is reminiscent of that tasty threshold

Something keeps slipping out from under the font: the word’s designed skin

makes a space for new inhabitants.
    Inhabiting you.
Lenguaje is SPATIAL.

    Confronting my inadequacies is like spiritual crack,

dressed in fur

Knowing what it feels like to lose. Sensation(al).
