Drawing on the entire wealth of the human senses, Kate McIntosh has created a number of diversely captivating works over the last years that physically involve the audience as sensory, interactive participants. Following ›All Ears‹ (2013) and ›In Many Hands‹ (2015), which both premiered at PACT, her new performance steps out in a different direction, giving listeners a sonic immersion in a world of percussion and vocals. 

Starting from the bodily pleasure of beats and the energy of voices, ›To Speak Light Pours Out‹ is a collaboration between several composers, writers and performers to create a space that vibrates with anger, celebration and joy and calls out to the lust for transformation, resistance, and new shapes of being. 

Twisting playfully between gentleness, humor and confrontation, ›To Speak Light Pours Out‹brings a liberating and activating effect - inviting us to enjoy the sharp energies of positive disturbance and resolute possibility.
