Our Movements Are Loud


"Our Movements Are Loud", produced by Bridge Radio, commissioned for Glossary of Common Knowledge 2021’s seminar on the theme of Subjectivisation, co-organized by HDK-Valand Academy – Arts and Design, University of Gothenburg, L’Internationale Online and Moderna Galerija in Ljubljana. The partners engage a fluid network of listening sites – Radio Alhara in Betlehem, Bridge Radio in Copenhagen and Radio Student in Ljubljana where provocations on the relations between essentialism and subjectivisation may be positioned and disseminated, thereby offering widened greater accessibility and geographical reverberance.

"Our Movements are Loud" has been produced collectively by people with and without Danish citizenship. They are linked to each other through their experience of the asylum system in Denmark.

The radio play consists of different perspectives, positions and voices that coincide in a story about the fight against expulsion. These interwoven stories take place in an imaginary scenario and are told by activists working inside and outside the asylum camps.

The stories in the radio play are based on real events that have taken place in asylum camps, airplanes and in larger protests that The Bridge Radio and its network has participated in.

The process of creating the radio play started with a workshop in writing and drama for radio with writer Athena Farrokhzad, director Saga Gärde and sound designer Arash Pandi.
