LITHIUM will present A Sounding Line, an evening of reading and lecture performances by Maryam Taghavi, Joe Demes (feat. Eve Kalugin & Caroline McCraw), and Sammi Skolmoski, on December 1, 7–9PM.
These performances cast a line that measures and marks the distance
of a voice, which is also the distance between artist and audience.
One artist will invite audience to be a part of the work, by synchronizing certain physiognomic movements of singing; one will divide into a trio
and, though maintaining a physical space, surround audience with voices that reminisce, reason, and repent; and one, who is a little shy, will chooseto stand further back and direct the audience’s attention towards shifting images
