In the performance A Mouthful of Tongues the voice is a hallucinatory terrain, from which many beings emerge. Stina Fors passes through a variety of voice techniques (growling, ventriloquism, tongue exercises and dinosaur screams). The body becomes a stranger to itself, multiplying, distorting and contradicting. For several years Fors has been researching the relationship between body and voice. With a certain taste for the absurd and strange, the dancer and choreographer creates a solo in which she allows multiple identities to be seen and heard through a distorted ventriloquist’s act.

Stina Fors, (b. 1989), is a choreographer, performer, drummer, and vocalist. She studied choreography and performance at SNDO (School for New Dance Development) in Amsterdam where she developed a passion for sound and voice, which led her to create a repertoire of solo performances, including her one-woman-punk-band; Stina Force. Her live performances often incorporate experimentation and improvisation as creative strategies. They are designed to be adaptable and performed in various spaces and events. Stina Fors lives and works in Vienna, AT.
