Sonic Bile is pneumatic digestion - the song of transformation, the sound of letting go.
Through sonic and corporeal maceration, the performer churns emotions in acid dreamscapes, insides turned out. Gastric agents linger in the dripping slimy folds of skin and spectre, smiling and smacking and grimacing - the mind of the belly of bacterial emotional juice. Sonic bile bridges the distance between what was and what could be. In this work, we are looking into our bodies' generational and transgenerational leftovers. We are digesting and breathing into those spaces, exploring the potential of letting go to find a more available place for reimagining ourselves in the now.
Sonic Bile is a developmental process and a part of Annamari Keskinen's ongoing performance series Between the not yet and the already no more.
