South African artists Thabiso Nkoana and Pule kaJanolitji come together for the month of December in a Pro Helvetica residence in Zürich to develop their shared practices in poetry, music and spoken word. During this time they will also visit Rotterdam to engage in a sound studio residency at WORM. At Vrooom they'll present a performed work-in-progress, as developed in their residencies.
• Thabiso Nkoana is a poet, music producer and musicologist. As a musicologist he focuses on the digital repatriation of African music from archives, for the benefit of communities of origin and African artists in general.
• Pule kaJanolitji is a scholar of linguistics and a cultural historian of speech practices, promoting writing systems of the African continent, like the N'Ko or Ditema tsa Dinoko script. His MA research describes South African cryptolects, which are secret forms of speech. Here's a video of Pule Welch as a verbal artist:
Rotterdam-based artist Lili Huston-Herterich will introduce some of the developing cast of ceramic puppets she has been producing this year, who will vent their qualms with their positions and the story they have been tasked to tell. The puppets are animated and voiced by their makers, in collaboration with Pule kaJanolintji.
Ilya Ziblat Shay is a NL-based composer, sound artist and a researcher. His work combines interactive computer systems and live performance, exploring sound and structure with an experimental approach and an understanding of music as a co-authored and a collective process. Searching for new means of expression that can reach beyond the purely musical, Ilya approaches current world issues with a critical view and tries to map technological, political, and ethical questions as augmented musical narratives.

Tisa N. Herlec vocalizes, communicates, organizes, writes, performs and creates imaginaries (with sound, voice, in texts and images). Her "Tongue-twisters and other linguistic anomalies" is a performance for language and its adjacent sounds, vocalized in an intuitive, and yet at times rigid tongue-twisting composition. This performance is a release of Tisa's newest piece supported by the Stichting Droom en Daad.
