New Voices in Live Performance Curated by Elisabeth Motley: I Just Want to See You Underwater
May 10-12, 7:30 p.m. 2012; $15
Inspired by a watercolor-like hallucination Motley experienced while suffering from a brain disease, Underwater has evolved into a performance event that examines compound levels of disorientation; considering the social and physiological ramifications incurred when one experiences any form of confusion. In a shadowy, dream-like environment the artists’ incorporate extensive tactile materials such as baby powder and beans with rigorously skillful and surreal movement. Both sonic and visually resounding, Underwater features live music from instrumental band Colonna Sonora, projected visuals from Victoria Masters, and choreography from Motley Dance.
