Part transcript, part transmission, the poems in No Knowledge Is Complete Until It Passes Through My Body explore the intelligence of the body, especially the body under duress. Drawing on the multi-disciplinary performances of Okwui Okpokwasili, Wadud evokes experiences of transmission to explore methods and modes of continuum, endurance, claustrophobia and stillness. She asks, how does a thread of logic form? How do we extend it on either end? How do the ends carry their own propulsion?
