    Alongside the Pickle Bar this lecture performance by Slavs and Tatars presents an in-depth look at their artistic explorations of language. Transliterative Tease investigates the potential of transliteration, the conversion of scripts, as a strategy of resistance and research into notions of identity politics, colonialism and faith. The march of alphabets has always accompanied that of empires: Arabic and Islam, Latin and Roman Catholicism, Cyrillic and the Orthodox Church and, subsequently, communism. Transliterative Tease is about the emancipation not of peoples and nations, but of sounds from their scripts.
