Let us start from a concrete experience.

The convening of ten women to bring themselves inside a process, an artistic quest that is situated around a question: how do women resist together today?

The theme of the feminine meets the theme of collectivity and finally of resistance, understood not as opposition to one force or action in contrast to others, but activated in its most implicit and mysterious sense, that of re-existence.

Voice and uniqueness are the starting points of this work. Choral singing gathers the differences of each voice and throat and language of origin to transfer them into an arrangement that is based on listening and welcoming, shaping a wave that moves like a dance of struggle and surrender.
The audience witnesses this possibility: the construction of a circular space in which viewpoints and experiences intertwine and non-violent communication opens up to broader socialization.

KIN deploys the assembly device of conversation to give voice to discourse free of judgment and prejudice. The performance asks to practice listening before viewing, and moves between song and word with the most heated desire to be experienced. The circle of chairs in which the audience will find itself involved is a socially placed spiral, where the openings between lines matter as much as that visible part that closes in a beginning and an end.

Kin is the new artistic production of Collective Amigdala that is taking shape through a process of working around the themes of feminism, civic activism and cultural memory.
