greif song was a perfromative reading which took place within the Pirate Academy at KMD Bergen. The Pirate Academy is a series of research festivals and gatherings run at the Art Academy in Bergen, aimed at alternative communal forms, pirate practices, and fugitive art making. Organized by Brandon LaBelle.
Within this performance I explored the personal and political sides of greif, considering the ways greif is hidden from view in Western culture and confined by capital interests. In the reading I make a call for listening to greifs urgency and layers and allowing ourselves to be un-fixed. The banner contains a poem by Mary Oliver.
