Mothering The Tongue is a lecture-performance where Linder dances through a rumination on the practice of “free dance” and the layers of danced experience. Linder’s text weaves theoretical, cultural and personal ingredients that contribute to a “writing in real-time”, which he then physically responds to, propelled by a variety of music from Bach to Sinéad O’Connor.
Contrary to his vibrantly staged works for the theatre and the exhibition space Mothering The Tongue is a striped-down scenario, an invitation into a mindset that can produce electric possibilities for spontaneous embodiment.
