Kupalua & Teta Lírica live at Noshade party - Maze Berlin april 2019
I have been listening to voices

I have been listening to voices inside my pussy

They scream in the night

They just wanna be heard

They mean something that was lost in time

Something that also screams inside of you

Something that is everywhere but nobody sees
“Kupalua is always in transit. There’s no trace of morals or frontier. It’s simultaneously extra-terrestrial and earthly-physical-corporeal. Travels from the interior of the uterus to outer space at the speed of light. There’s no separation between nature-culture or body-cosmos. What is root and what is synthetic? Dissonant and melodic voices, synthesizers, microphones and processors. The body’s construction as prosthetics and light depict the sonorous landscape. Laser prosthesis are making contact with us and with outer-space while every matter flows through timbers that leaves us given over to estrangement. I don’t know where I am when I listen/see Kupalua, if I’m under water or if I’m suspended, weightless, timeless, without story, without clothes. It’s a journey completely inside of sound waves.”

THE BLOOP music video
Multi-artist born in Brazil, interested in the transdisciplinarity between performance, voice, composition, musical production and video. Investigating power dynamics between and within bodies, Kupalua problematizes gender expectations and the institutionalisation of human relations. With sounds coming from the most interior places such as the cervix or from the deepest spot in the Ocean, Kupalua is a physical experience, sound waves trespass your body and voices whisper to your bones other notions of darkness, womanhood, alien and terrain possibilities.
