Back in 20 mins is an invitation to examine a world of possibilities within our present spatial, social, emotional, and physical capacities. In its format, this pluridisciplinary online program includes a collaborative SoundCloud playlist, a written contribution, and a screening program that draws on the collective desire to mentally check-out, stretch one's body, tag along for a long drive, and meaningfully connect with our environment and other beings. Some questions guiding my curatorial discourse are: what kind of psychological latitude is provided through the unfolding of familiar and foreign spaces? What is the relationship between music, wanderlust, and emotional resonance? What are the musings or the memories we recall when going on a stroll?
This playlist was created with Geneviève Wallen and Souad Martin-Saoudi
Souad Martin-Saoudi is a lawyer specializing in international human rights laws who happens to be a music blogger and, on occasions, a backup dancer for rapper Donzelle. Born in Montreal to a Quebecois mother and a Moroccan father, she pursued international relations and international law studies, which took her to the United States through Argentina and Costa Rica. In 2017, Souad crossed the Atlantic to settle in Morocco, consolidating an identity that encompasses both her parents' cultures.
