This year, Wysing Arts Centre invited A---Z (Anne Duffau) to curate the eleventh edition of the festival, which was hosted online. Catch up with the online programme and find out more about contributing artists in this Explore section.
For the first part of The Ungoverned, five international musicians created mixes and soundscapes experimenting between sound, music and spoken word and responding to the idea of being ungovernable and defying norms. These recordings were presented on wysingbroadcasts.art over the month of August and presented collective minds exploring a positive present and rewriting the past.
The Ungoverned looked at how we can deconstruct normativity through collaboration, exchange, texts, ephemeral gestures and other languages. This year’s programme emphasised the importance of difference and diverse ways of communicating: the morphing of words to choreographies, soundscapes, dialects and voices.
The festival’s second part was presented on the 5th of September as a special live broadcast of readings from three international artists, writers, and poets (Whiskey Chow, Tanaka Fuego and Rachel Long), which was followed by a newly commissioned performance from choreographer and dancer Maëva Berthelot and musician Coby Sey.
