Heart Tethers: a co-laboratory performance tending to co-sensing and attuning within difference

2023-02-23 @ 08:00 - 17:00

We invite you to a performance collaboration between the RISE project, Concordia Laptop Orchestra (CLOrk), Danielle Garrison, Ryan McCullough and community dancers. The idea of the week-long residency and performance is to co-compose and create resonant feedbacks via a live heartbeat and its phases, sensing the tension, release and rest within three movements. The heartbeat will be the source of composition/interprretation within an ecology of a 20-person digital orchestra, RISE singers/artists, and dancers considering: How to sense one’s inner rhythms in relation to exterior rhythms? How to attune within diverse rhythms? How does relational composition co-compose, relate, shift experiences? What are the sensations, feelings, thoughts, reflections of the ethics of composing with the heartbeat? How do we create and tend to a space to feel and perhaps transform our hearts through interdisciplinary creation with each other and the public?

What to expect if attending in person:

We are working on creating care in inviting you into our tender process. In this intention, there will be fluidity in experiencing the performance, inviting you to enter, dwell, linger and exit the performance as you need/desire, consider your heart in the process, enjoy light snacks and tea, and the option to create responses to the event. Also, you will get to encounter some LeParc folx dancing such as Lucy Fandel, Erin Manning, VK Preston, Sarah Hanley and Sasha Kleinplatz!

WHEN? Thursday, February 23, 2023 8:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.

WHERE? Performing Arts Research Cluster (LePARC), EV 10.760.

*This event is free and open to all
