Ieva Misevičiūtė (Lithuania, 1982) has master’s degrees in politics and cultural analysis, and will finally get her PhD, in one hour, right in front of you, and granted by her tongue! The piece consists of ten chapters, each investigating the tongue through a different metaphorical lens, fusing elements of physical theater, academic reverie, dance, and sexual slapstick. ‘Misevičiūtė’s acts distort social characters and behaviors by imbuing them with animality, existential contortions… and hallucinogenic cleverness.’ – Natalia Valencia, Crash magazine.

This program is presented by If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution and Veem House for Performance. Tongue PhD is commissioned by Corpus, network for performance practice. Corpus is Bulegoa z/b (Bilbao), CAC (Vilnius), KW (Berlin), If I Can’t Dance (Amsterdam), Playground (STUK & M, Leuven), and Tate Modern (London). Corpus is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
