WARNING: When you leave the theater, you will leave changed. Get ready for a mind-altering evening with a pair of alchemical works from two visionary artists.
First, filmmaker JB Ghuman Jr. brings us an epic 45-minute visual-sonic experience meant to expand one's consciousness and emotional capacity through an explosive mix of hand-crafted art and multidimensional storytelling. Multifariously following the story of the Little Mermaid, THE (ART) oF BE(i)NG reaches for a mathematics of the soul to engage the more “subtle” functions of the mind.
Then, after the film, a troupe of dancers takes the stage. Put on your red-and-cyan glasses and experience a singular feat of stereoscopic shadow play. Light artist Christine Marie has been working with analog-generated shadows for over a decade, and she built her own 3-D stereoscope. In (antiquated) Augmented Reality, Marie taps this Victorian art form by casting the dancers’ shadows on a screen, while the audience watches through their 3-D glasses: it’s an immersive, fever-dream dance experience both on the stage and immediately in front of your nose.
