Work in Progress presentation for j e l l o, Links Hall, Chicago:
We presented a Project(debrief) to introduce audience members to the project goals. Tonal broadcasts were be body-based and focused on the frequencies of organs. Audience members were invited to contribute and respond to the work.
Ritual Through Diaspora presented for 2nd Floor Rear in 3 Venues:
Jenn (in Thailand) and Christine (in Chicago) presented “Ritual Through Diaspora” - a physical exploration of resonances of tranquility. At Hume gallery, the home of Sara Zalek, and tritriangle, traveling trunks expanded to create a space for an intimate ritual gathering that engaged with bodies scattered from their original homelands. A live radio broadcast accompanied the presentation and was accessed by individuals in the vicinity.
