Gabriel Todd: Performer

This work is the result of research into expressive vocal soundings from various specific body organs and systems. This ongoing practice is motivated by the question: can each individual organ hold and express it's own story? Can a body organ or system contain accessible bio-energetic information about it's current state and history? If so, can it feed that information back to us in a language that we can understand?

Gabriel Todd and I collaborated to manifest this idea into a body practice. The next step was to make it a performable act.
