The Voice is a Language will be screened and performed at Tate Modern, London, as part of Electra’s Her Noise symposium, on May 4, 2012. The evening programme will feature original and reworked videos from the 2010 project, as well as live performances by Cara Tolmie and Sue Tompkins. More progamme info and news to come soon.


THE VOICE IS A LANGUAGE has now come to an end – for now… Thanks to all of you for the support and engagement in the project.

There are already plans afoot to make a second installment of THE VOICE IS A LANGUAGE project, so we hope you’ll join us again when that comes to fruition in the next year. Details will be announced in the coming weeks.

Until then, the website will remain ‘as is’, and documentation from the project will also be added over the coming weeks. Daily posts will cease, but there is more to come.

Warmest thanks to the artists without whom this would be nothing, as well as Claire Jackson and Tramway who made it happen.

Catch THE VOICE IS A LANGUAGE in its last couple of days at Tramway, Glasgow, 3-6pm daily. Elsewhere about the city, its worth popping in to see Sue Tompkins new works on paper, showing as part of On Publications, Portraits, Public Art and Performance, an exhibition curated by Daniel Bauman, in the Modern Institute’s old space; while Cara Tolmie also presents a new video work in Kiss of Life, an exhibition staged by the Finn Collective in the amazing renovated Glue Factory in Maryhill.

This site is a reader to the screening and performance event THE VOICE IS A LANGUAGE, showing at Tramway, Glasgow, as part of Glasgow International, 15-25 April 2010. While the event features work by Meredith Monk, Sophie Macpherson, James Richards, Cara Tolmie and Sue Tompkins, and is curated by Isla Leaver-Yap, this online reader seeks to build up a collage of online material that expands the scope of the project, and bring a range of voices and materials to the fore.
