*the underrated act of talking to oneself*
presented by: femme. collective

Founded in “jouska,” the hypothetical and often lively conversation one has
with oneself, femme. collective presents an invitation to experience the
tension and slack, anxiety and catharsis that releases from the familiar,
and often underrated, activity of talking to yourself.

*Lives continue despite things being left unsaid or perhaps going
differently than expected. The practice of jouska serves to expel a
person’s inner monologue and release these words cathartically into the
ether. Sometimes jouska informs our future conversations, sometimes it is
merely an opportunity for conversation with one who cannot talk back. The
practice of jouska is surrounded by a storm cloud of intense emotion and
anxiety, yet also a sense of release and fortification. It is both
preparation and discard; dialogue within a monologue. the underrated act of
talking to oneself is an invitation to witness the inner workings of these
one-sided conversations, to experience the tension and slack produced by
the act of jouska.femme. collectivehttp://www.femmecollectivephilly.com/
