Samita Sinha and Tanya Tagaq join Reuben Roqueñi, Program Officer of Performing Arts at the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation, to discuss aspects of voice, body, gender, colonial politics, and experimentation with traditional forms in their respective sound and vocal performances.

This event is part of the TBA Festival Flight: Gender, Culture, & Experiments with Tradition, which reflects a range of work by artists from diverse disciplines who rigorously examine the intersections of history, culture, language, gender, and aesthetic form, while experimenting with musical, vocal, and choreographic concepts and traditions that both exude and transcend particularities of time and place.

About Festival Flights: Festival Flights highlight artistic, political, or cultural connections among various performances, exhibitions, late-night shows, workshops, screenings, TBA Conversations, Field Guide sessions, and more. Think of a Flight as a thematic tasting–try one or two events or make time for an immersive experience across a range of related happenings.

About TBA Conversations: A series of engaging daily discussions with artists, curators, scholars, and community leaders. TBA Conversations put artists and audiences in direct dialogue, combining live artist interviews with audience Q&A. All conversations are free, open to the public, and take place at PICA from 12:30-1:30 PM unless otherwise noted. Arrive at noon, bring your lunch, and join us on the rooftop deck for iced tea, fresh air, and good company!
