Performed for ‘Shadow Play’, East of Elsewhere, Berlin, 2018.

'chant in' is a 2 to 3 hours durational performance of improvised chanting, inviting the audience to sit one by one on a chair in front of Taïs to receive individual chants inspired by their presence whilst maintaining eye contact.

Taïs first created the performance during the Marrakech Biennale in 2016, as a mean to delve into three main fears whilst singing in public: improvising, singing accapella and looking at the audience in the eyes.

Opening spaces of vulnerability, play and trust, the performance aims to offer a challenging yet intimate space for the audience to experience connection with the other and themselves, be seen, and receive.
