Text by Mette Edvardsen

Music by Jonathan Burrows, Francesca Fargion and Matteo Fargion

In this lecture with live music Mette Edvardsen will speak about language and repetition as material in her work. What does it mean to do the same? What does it mean to do something again? Every word was once an animal is part of Burrows and Fargion's Music For Lectures series, which aims to collide academic practice with the actuality of performance and continues their recent practice of creating in proximity and collaboration with the work of other artists.
