LungSong First Breaths

CM Brown, R Scoones, K Pol

Abstract

LungSong is a gathering and a rallying of performers who create and exchange breaths in protest and lament, contemplating and confronting climate chaos. Singing a new dialect, a 'babble' of syllables and movement, they create their own war and peace ceremonies, uniting in rituals. Shifting between realities, they take on different identities, inhabiting virtual avatars, they become environmental warriors who travel through solar and data dust clouds. They sing and howl from the edge of the world, and the edges of seven heavens. The echoes of their songs awaken struggling hearts and activate minds.
