Our faculty member, Ella Finer, who teaches ‘Performance Live: London’ will be chairing tonight’s panel at the Tate Modern – Monday, 23 September from 6.30pm.
Professor Finer’s biography:
“Ella Finer’s work in sound and performance spans writing, composing and curating with a particular interest in how women’s voices take up space; how bodies acoustically disrupt, challenge or change the order of who is allowed to occupy – command – space. Her research queries the ownership of cultural expression through sound, informing lectures, performances and events at cultural institutions such as The British Library, Whitechapel Gallery and Tate Modern and Liverpool. She is creator of the Acoustic Commons study group, consultant professor of Performance Studies at Syracuse London and a trustee of Longplayer. Her book Acoustic Commons and the Wild Life of Sound will be published by Errant Bodies, Berlin in 2020.”
