2022-23 [Performance Piece]

Collaboration performance piece with Hamiltonian fusion dancer Angela Josephine and local experimental Earth Wind and Choir (working with the whispers and breathings from Beth de Jong, Teresa Caterini, and Bailey Duff).

encarnadas => (f.) embodiments is an audio-visual project in the form of a performance piece and a dance-video piece. This is an 8–10-minute performance mixing a dancer, live video coding, and ASMR sonic experiences. This piece is an experimental homage to feminine human bodies, present both visually (through the image of the dancer physically and virtually) and sonically (through a sound composition built of repeating breathings, whispers, and other mouth sounds). It is through the eyes of technology, that the audience will experience a coming and going on folding and unfolding audio-visual images of the feminine bodies involved, moving through the multiple spaces and times of the project.

The event is finished.
