Cara Tolmie's new performance work 'Cancamon' was developed in connection with research done as part of her residency 'She’s Singing – I can feel boxes break' at KKH, Stockholm 2015-16. Physical sampling and repetition form the basis as Cara investigates signifiers and roles of the singer in contemporary popular culture, experimental and dance music. The work puts a range of experiments in voice and movement to use in asking questions about whose effects and languages the singing voice acts as a locus for, testing how the performing body might be able to disrupt and infect the flows of value that profit from this voice. Cara Tolmie is an artist and musician who experiments from within the intersections of performance, sound and moving image and draws from debates surrounding feminisms, the politics of music, and experimental pedagogy. She is also part of the editorial collective for Cesura//Acesso Journal, a publication exploring music, politics and poetics.
