Microbial Stomach Growl (2018)

Performance developed for Fermenting Feminism, in Copenhagen (event curated by Laboratory for Aesthetics and Ecology and Lauren Fournier.).

Microbial Stomach Growl is a speculative sci-fi fantasy and an interdisciplinary voice performance devised from research into microbial gut data. Inspired by Computational Biologist Peter E. Larsen who has studied methods to compose microbial music, Microbial Stomach Growl questions what we can learn from our gut’s delicate eco-system. Can listening to the microbes inside of us make us more environmentally aware? And are microbes feminists?


Concept, research and direction:

Maria Braender in collaboration with Katrine Faber.

Performers:

Maria Braender, Katrine Faber & Claus Otto.
