She gave it to me I got it from her

Clara Amaral

She gave it to me I got it from her

a poem that choreographs her hands and voice her voice that reads out loud

the book
becoming script becoming performance becoming archive

the permanence of her voice in the book in the book
the presence and absence of their names

She gave it to me I got it from her

It’s a book and a choreography, read out loud and handled by a performer, for a group of people.

About Clara Amaral

Clara Amaral is an artist working with text and performance. Her artistic practice is situated in an interdisciplinary perspective, questioning what it means to be a reader, to be a writer, aiming to expand existing modes of reading and writing. Central to her practice is the investigation of innovative publishing modalities and the performative aspect of writing and language through an intersectional feminist approach. More: www.misted.cc
