Body of Light is an epistolary reading by Himali Singh Soin accompanied by drummer David Soin Tappeser on the gongs, with healing dismantlements by Hadja Sidibeh. The performance installation will form a landscape of speculations and reflections about nuclear culture, porosity, leakages, toxicity and love, spiritual-scientific entanglements, environmental catastrophe and geopolitical faultlines.

This event is presented within the framework of Geopoetics, a live arts program that brings together the voices of poets and artists who turn to writing to reflect on a present marked by the irreversible transformations of planet Earth. Curated by Sabel Gavaldon, Head of Programmes at MACBA, and Alicia Escobio, Programmes Coordinator for the museum.
