Notes for an intervening time
In this live sound piece, Jana Omar Elkhatib will consider Palestinian geographies being poetically refracted through language, oral/aural memory, performance, and the voice. Elkhatib will sample from histories of the weaponization of sound and of collective intimacies across distance.
