GENERATOR is the first installment in the three part cycle titled “Pestilence” – a process merging art, social practice, and technology by combining theater, moving image, light, sound, music, choreography, drama, and immersive interactive media. Pestilence is an expressionistic meditation on epidemics as cultural phenomena. It’s about how virus infects and affects us all from the perspectives of our personal and collective experiences of AIDS.
At the call you may be asked to:
Evoke the sense of words everywhere throughout as though the sound of words is as wind in the ears.
Be directed in group contact improvisation.
Be directed in solo and group movement and vocal improvisations with props.
Be inspired by themes from Pestilence.
