Heavyweight: An Interactive Performance Installation
Monday, Dec. 10, 2018, 6:00 pm
Dance Studio Theatre, SDSU campus
Culmination of collaboration between Students from The School of Art + Design and the Division of Dance responding to a series of conversations with Fall 2018 visiting artist, Nick Cave, who is known for his sound suits. For this showcase, students composed performance pieces in response to movement and conversations with Cave.
My group focused on the theme of "Below the Surface." I was fortunate to have an amazing team - Jhovanna Garcia, Kelly Temple, and Remi Dalton. We were interested in the silent body, organisms growing under forrest and what happens underneath frozen lakes. As well as incorporating geometric vs. organic elements, and ideas of dance - interacting with/against or co-existing with music/sound.
