‘Speech Sound is consonni’s new Radio Show as the resident collective under the Amphitryon residency programme.It will be the 31st of May, Thursday, inside the programme Prototipoak, the international meeting of new artistic forms, curated by Rosa Casado and Mike Brookes. However, and above all, it is the title of a science fiction story by Octavia E. Butler, who won the prestigious Hugo Award for the best short story and for the first time in 1984. The story is about an illness which suddenly affects the ability to speak and/or read, write and reason; mainly to right handed and men. In a defeated civilisation, Butler tells the story of Rye, a woman who tries to cross the 20 miles to Pasadena among people whose only reliable form of communication are groans and violent, obscene and unintelligible gestures.

We have invited different people to read, listen, interpret, analyse, draw, sing and dance this chilling inspirational text by a must-read author for feminist science fiction and afrofuturism. Within the context of feminism, anthropology, psychology, sociology, radio theatre, berstolaritza (Basque improvised poetry), activism, dance, music, sign language, and performance, etc.,

We will count on the presence of the journalist and speaker Alicia San Juan, Miguel Deza, Stel García and Chusé Fernandez from the radio theater school TEA FM, Radio Vallekas, the sociologist and educator Helen Torres, the audiovisual and literary translator Carla Batallerthe (in)dependent curator and investigator Sonia Fernández Pan (Esnorquel), the teacher and researcher Iñaki Martínez de Albeniz, the journalist and bertsolari (Basque improvised poetry) Nerea Ibarzabal, the journalist and feminist activist Irantzu Varela, the social worker and feminist Hilaria Vianekethe painter and illustrator Pablo Gallointermedia artist Tunipanea, the dancer and choreographer Bea Fernández, the choreographer Eulàlia Berguedà with the musician Marc Naya, the artist Xoan Anleothe collective Horman Poster with the senegalese dancer and musician MBaye Sene, the performer Myriam Rzm, the musician Ok­kre (in collaboration with Eomac), and many other names yet to be confirmed.
This time, we rethink about radio shows and we will broadcast from our radio studio situated in the Atrium of Azkuna Zentroa.
