Tosh Basco est une artiste dont le travail de performance en mouvement fonctionne par l'improvisation comme un mode de survie et de construction du monde dans l'espace liminaire et performatif où le devenir rencontre la représentation.

Inflexible sur l'expérience viscérale de la performance visuelle en direct, elle explique comment le mouvement de la forme peut communiquer ce qui reste impénétrable dans les images, et à travers le langage. Ses performances ont été présentées au Gropius Bau, à la Biennale de Venise, à la Biennale de Sydney, au Whitney Museum of American Art, au MoMA PS1, au San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, au Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, au MOCA Los Angeles, au Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, à l'ICA Londres et à Berghain.


Hypatia Vourloumis lives and works in Athens, Greece.  She holds a Ph.D in performance studies from New York .

Her research interests focus broadly on anticolonial, feminist, critical race and queer theory; Indonesian and modern Greek cultural production; philosophies of language; theories of aesthetics, music, poetics; sound studies.

She received the NYU Deena Burton award for outstanding research for her dissertation on the performance of postcolonial paralanguage in Indonesia. She is co-editor of Performance Research journal 'On Institutions' and has published in journals, art catalogues and edited volumes including Women & Performance, Ephemera, and Theatre Journal. She teaches at the International Centre for Hellenic and Mediterranean Studies and is a research fellow at the Research Centre for the Humanities in Athens.
