Transmutable voices: new aesthetics of citizenship, is a mixed media “performance exhibition” with multi-faith women’s group and choir Migrant Artists Mutual Aid (MaMa) developed by performer and director Jennifer Verson, multimedia artist and psychotherapist Lorena Rivero de Beer and social psychologist and photographer Pamela Mastrilli. It is based around the use of digital methods to combine singing with photography and performance art.

MaMa choir members have a variety of mother tongues and regular performances and weekly rehearsals have enabled the group to develop a keen sense of the power of performance to transcend (and transmute) political boundaries and positively engage in new political frontiers.

This event will combine photo-performances co-create-ed by MaMa members and Manuel Vason with live performances, storytelling and written text and will culminate in a “performative a[u]ction” of the photographs.
