Howl is a transforming performance project and an exhibition space. Bodies of painting, sculpture and live performance mesh, gearing towards extended beings and hybrid bodies through interdependencies of human and non-human.

Howl is a calling upon connection beyond speech, towards another kind of speaking. In this work, textile lacing, drawing, inanimate and animate search towards a multitextural and sensual environment in which to speak in and with. They are searching for a fertility of language where textures, weight, liquid, and sound create a damp soil in which communicative tension resonates.
