WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

inging refers to the suffix "ing" in the English language. "ing" is used to express actions that are still in progress and haven't yet ended. inging is a dance of the mind, moving in the continuous present. It tracks the velocity of thought through a non-linear cascade of non-stop speaking. inging does not give time to consider the rational or the consequent. inging proposes the insistent practice of unscripted languaging as performance, where speaker is in direct relation with listener at the moment of articulation. Both performer and audience are confronted with the limits of language as a means of communication and understanding. The body and its gesture emerge as the inevitable bridge between thought and language.
