Wind and Voice

A performance by Elyas Alavi April 2012, Seedling Art Space, Adelaide. “A breath, a sigh, a laugh, a scream; through voice we communicate, impart meaning and make ourselves heard. Speech, language and culture binds families, cultures and traditions, and the use of poetry in language is itself a masterful form of breath that explores the breadth and depth of human existence. Breath is wind that exemplifies the breadth of human emotion in breathing patterns and heartbeats, synchronised and mechanical, a rhythm whose intensity fluctuates with our feelings.” Part of essay by Andrew Lawrence.
