Clearly or Darkly
February 21 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$15.00
Clearly or Darkly is a flexible structured improvisational and new media performance. Within each unique presentation of this work, a body alters, reacts, and interacts with visual effects and videos triggered by movement and specially programmed sensor technology. Bush’s body and the projected images enter a feedback loop duet that extends the boundaries of her embodiment. With each performance, new visual layers reflect the potential for nuanced identity expression in and in between physical and virtual space.
In its first iteration, Clearly or Darkly uses this body/sensor format to explore ways in which we may reconcile with and create space to express trauma. How do we deal with who we are after trauma? How do we let our bodies free us? The work features an movement structure that draws from ideas of reorganizing, revealing/hiding, and adaptation to suggest ways in which we find pathways of survival.
