In her solo performance, Thea Soti investigates the boundaries of gender, language, memory and social affiliation through researching the human voice in a digital context. By continuously manipulating, recycling and processing her own voice, re-imagining folk-songs and improvising in unknown languages, she questions the contemporary meaning of binary gender, geographically defined cultural heritage, borders, traditional social codes, etc. In our technology-infused world, where reality is shifting towards machines and virtual entities, she explores the legacy of the human voice: how far can it still carry a human expression and how does it collide with post-human identities.
