Aura Satz: TURNTABLE TABLEAU & TALKING BOOK VENTRILOQUIST ACT
TURNTABLE TABLEAU & TALKING BOOK VENTRILOQUIST ACT
a film performance, Sun 9 May 2010, 5pm
ICA - Live Weekend 1 - Performance etc (produced by David Gryn)
Aura Satz presents a Talking Book Ventriloquist Act, followed by a live soundtrack to her film 'Sound Seam', performed by Alex Baker, Lina Hakim, Chris McCormack, Roger Orwell, Frances Scott and Aura Satz.
'Sound Seam' is presented at the ICA as a silent film accompanied only by the surface noise of crackle, whilst the performers enact a live sculptural sound-track, a spiraling multivocal counterpart, a cornocupia of voices recounting a tale of mourning and technology, a forensic love-story of sorts in which the voices overlap, echo and pre-empt each other. The cinematic stage is animated by a voice-over carousel, a spinning tableau vivant, a canon of voices amplified by horns set on a rotating stage.

TALKING BOOK VENTRILOQUIST ACT
Aura Satz presents a Talking Book Ventriloquist Act, as part of Magic Show, a Hayward Touring Exhibition from the Southbank Centre,
curated by artist Jonathan Allen and writer Sally O'Reilly.
Using a bespoke low-tech record player hand-cranked inside a book, Aura performs a ventriloquist act in which she engages in conversation with her pre-recorded self, a monologue-dialogue which evokes a voice inside a voice, a presence summoned simultaneously from the past, the present and the silent inner self.
Sat 31 July 2010 7pm
Magic Cabaret night features performances by Brian Catling, Aura Satz, Ian Saville and Bedwyr Williams. Plus rare archival films and artists' videos.
