Word Diving Ritual, 2020

Collaborative Performance with Jennifer Moore

performed at the opening of 
sometimes the river flows backwards, Backwater Artists Group
9th January 2020

Arising out a continous sharing of ideas and processes with one another, Jennifer composed a narrative soundscape, which played throughout the exhibition space for the duration of the performance. Cara distributed a number of handheld objects and a digitally printed polyester script to visitors. Led by Jennifer, the audience were invited to participate with the artwork, both individually and collectively engaging with text, textiles and objects throughout the space, by speaking and singing, opening up processes of vocal and melodic play and experimentation.
