Weaving [your] echoes in [my] echoes
In collaboration with Oscar Robertson, Weaving echoes in echoes is a sound based endurance performance focusing on the artists’ differences of languages that attempt to connect, outside of signification, in an empathic process of mutual mimesis and transmutation. This performance is part of Dela Peña and Robertson’s ongoing research project entitled Just Wanted You To Know… which centers around the socio-political sentiments of impossible love within culture contrast, geographical positioning and status quo. As phase one of the project series, Weaving [your] echoes in [your] echoes explores the performative utterance of languages, that is foreign to one, as a meditative gesture towards collective solidarity and healing.
