Ingesture



er er er er

A collaboration with poet and writer Christian Hawkey, Ingesture explores a set of relations between language and embodied gesture, sonicity and communal mysticism, identity and the unending movement of more-than-human bodies. The piece was directly inspired by the writings of Charlotte Wolff, a late 20th century German-British physician, sexologist, lesbian, healer and chirologist.
