Ha Za Vu Zu are looking for 20 volunteers to take part in a vocalisation performance which will take place on the opening evening of the exhibition Spirit of Utopia at the Whitechapel Gallery on 3 July 2013 at 7.30pm.
You do not need previous experience or a good singing voice, just the ability to make sound and noise. This performance is open to all who want to make a statement and use it as a gesture of reaction.
A series of artist led 6 two-hour rehearsals will take place at the Whitechapel Gallery in the mornings between 24 June – 2 July.
Time commitment: 12 hours of rehearsal plus one performance.

Ha Za Vu Zu is an artist collective based in Istanbul, Turkey who have been working together since 2005. While the group’s practice ranges from installations to videos to all manner of objects, their particular strength is performances that play on the boundary between performer and audience.
