What is the capacity of sound to reach deepest to what calls our bodies to action? Through intimate performances, each artist explores with sound themes of embodiment, place, community and identity. Occupying unique spaces in the SFU Goldcorp building, these sonic experiences will have participants travelling with embodied geographies, exploring a sounding body and listening to the liminal in new imagined ecosystems.
