Keeping Together in Time 

Note from Noor:

Keeping Together in Time explores the capacity for social formation through collective, rhythmic performances, focusing on ‘performance’ as a method of survival.  The work is inspired by ‘battle chants’ as a practice; performed historically during the preparation phase preceding the escalation of war – questioning therefore, ‘sound’ as a sociopolitical form that is rooted with notions of survival, navigating a gap between oppression and freedom.
