Ursula Andkjaer Olsen’s poems about the female body in the biological and emotional cycle of life reveal our involvement in universal questions and processes of human coexistence.
Juliana Hodkinson translates the image into a hyper-polyphonic electro-acoustic sound narrative charged with ambient drones, literally spinning around the audience and the performer.
