Earthworm Narrates Future Footsteps to Mars
RSVP below for this in person event.
Researcher and musician Bint Mbareh explores questions of land sovereignty through sound. For this performance, Bint Mbareh draws from her ongoing research on the practice of rain-summoning in Palestine. These practices of communal singing helped communities build a deeper relationship with their environment, land, and each other. Through this performance Bint Mbareh asks – what collective fictions give land agency and how do they sound?
Bint Mbareh is a sound researcher with a curiosity about the superpowers of communal singing. Her initiation into music came through her research on rain-summoning in Palestine. She conducted research initially to combat the myth of water scarcity pushed by Israeli settler colonialism. She now studies death and rebirth as analogies for necessary upheavals, still looking for these significations in Palestinian landscape, especially the shrine of Nabi-Musa, the prophet Moses.
