Songing with our ancestors: hydrofeminisms

-Online (via zoom) and limited places at Kaaistudio’s-
This last session in our Series of More-than-Human Encounters is entirely devoted to oceanic storytelling in kinship with hydrofeminism.
The ocean holds numerous stories of kinship between the human and the more-than-human. One of those stories tells of the ancient oceanic ancestors of our present-day (human) bodies of water. Traces of many of those ancestors, such as the amoeba or the jellyfish, are still present in the human body. This last session in our Series of More-than-Human Encounters is entirely devoted to oceanic storytelling in kinship with hydrofeminism. This form of feminism is particularly sensitive towards watery creatures and our solidarity with them. It is also inspired by music and song-making practice – songings –, believing them to be a means of interspecies community creation and resistance. We therefore propose joining with these ancestors in practices of writing, songing and storytelling. It considers listening to them as essential for finding – and healing – our more-than-human voice(s) in times of rising waters.
With Marialena Marouda and The Oceanographies Institute (TOI) and queer Black feminist poet and scholar Alexis Pauline Gumbs.
