The Verses of Flesh

Reading group with Alex Díaz

Dates: February 5, 7 and 10, 2020, from 7 to 8 pm

While delving deep into the mysticism of Turba Turbo, Alejandro Alonso Díaz will lead a reading group that will meet for three consecutive sessions to explore the physical cadence, texture and acoustics of this sedimented space.

Inspired by a series of mystical writings by women in the 13th and 14th centuries, as well as by a group of contemporary writers and musicians, this group is seen as a small brotherhood that will explore forms of metabolic fiction, post-feudal speculation and physical resonance through the intonation, rhythm and harmonies of a joint declamation.

If you wish to join this group, we will be launching an open call for applications from anyone interested in the issues described. Please note that we will be accepting a maximum number of participants in keeping with the nature of the group.

To participate in this reading group, you must send an email with an attached brief statement outlining the reasons for your interest to lacapella@bcn.cat.
