8/22 Here Comes The World
August 22, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm MST$10
Here Comes The World: an original immersive borderland experience in sound, motion and images of digital light.
Musicians Thollem McDonas, Glenn Weyant and Michael Dauphinais will be joined by the ZUZI! Dancers to remix, reinterpret, and re-present transformative footage from a Border Wall experience earlier in the day shot within the Arizona, USA/Sonora, Mex. militarized zone.
The audio and video will fill the space as a point of departure for an improvisation illustrating the dynamics surrounding political borders as well as the inevitable collapse of all that is rigid and seemingly unmovable.
The sonic score will be created live with amplified found objects, field recordings, electronics, and instruments of both traditional and original design.
The world comes to us as much as we go to the world with a sense of humility, humor and adventure, awake to possibilities and with curiosity and unity across borders of all kinds.
