Helen Davison works across performance and sound creating work that explores the struggle of language to articulate queer experience.  Through live performances and vocal works Davison sets up encounters between the body and the voice in response to the articulated struggle. "I extend upon, inhibit or interrupt my own attempts at vocalisation in order to arrive at an exchange that is palpable in its struggle, resonant in its vulnerability and reflects the chaos of trauma.”
