CURRENTS NEW MEDIA 2017

June 9-25, 2017

First Saturday Performances

Four Directions Home/Noisefold and The Warriors/Arcos Dance

Two powerful multimedia performances.

ARCOS Dance
The Warriors: A Love Story (excerpts)
Multimedia Performance 30 minutes
Austin, TX / Santa Fe, NM

The Warriors: A Love Story, is a multimedia performance that confronts the disturbing beauty and profound devastation of war. dance, interactive video projections, and live music conjure a condensed history of life and death in the twentieth century, and a soldier’s epiphany upon nearly shooting his own reflection in an abandoned farmhouse. Originally premiered in 2013 in Santa Fe, the reimagined production is on its way to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland.

Returning to CURRENTS for 2014:

NoiseFold: David Stout / Cory Metcalf
Four Directions Home
Multimedia Performance 65 minutes
Denton, TX

Using the painterly possibilities of digital generative techniques, this live cinema, sound and music performance explores real-time audio-visual processes to re-imagine the traditions of landscape painting. We can no longer view the landscape as a refuge, as much of the world is under siege. In this transfigured landscape of strip mines, chemical dumps, deforested expanse and glacial decline, NoiseFold imagines a different kind of elemental awareness. The pastoral slides away in successive waves of transformation.
