Everything Illegal — Live Radio Performance
In his radio project Listening’s Urgency Hardi Kurda questions the legitimacy of the legal and the construction of illegality:
Illegality is awareness of a movement which doesn’t have a voice, which is not recognized, which is not normal. Illegality provocates and askes for something to change.
For the final performance as part of the Radio Art Residency, Kurda meets the soprano and voice performer Nina Guo for a telepathic live radio performance that invites listeners to follow them into the fringe areas of social order. What emerges is a radiophonic narration that draws on personal experiences from these marginal areas. It is based on conversations with the cellist Khabat Abas, the performance artist Sherko Abbas and a former smuggler, who have shared their stories with us, as well as on Kurdas own story.
