Overtongue


In Overtongue, Michelle Moura’s new creation to be premiered in 2019, Moura continues developing ways to create psycho-physical changes, exploring dissociations between voice and body, sound and image.

Overtongue takes inspiration from the book “Archaic Revival”, by psychedelic researcher Terence McKenna (1946-2000). The 'Overmind' (as he calls it), is a source of human and non-human collective (un)conscious; a space where all beings' voices are not only heard but make sense.

Inspired by McKenna's visionary approach, Overtongue explores the possibility of an affective language that can be shared and felt by all and everything. By bringing together imagined, real, created and borrowed languages, Michelle Moura will explore in this new creation a space where many beings’ voices are heard and seen together.
