Tiny SeismicJanuary 13, 9:00pm - 10:00pm
Honolulu Campus, Ong King Arts Center
UHM Department of Theatre and Dance Faculty Peiling Kao and Kara Miller present "Tiny Seismic" at the 2017 O'ahu Fringe Festival on January 13 & 14 at 9pm at the Ong King Arts Center in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Tiny Seismic is a shared dance and new media program. The event includes an improvisation duo electroViolet between Peiling Kao (movement) and Gretchen Jude (sound), video dance installations Mango Dream and Seconds by Kara Miller, and excerpts from Degrees of Separation by the Spinning Goats.
Body electric 1.1 is an improvisation set by electroViolet, which is a duo between Peil- ing Kao (movement) and Gretchen Jude (sound). They enter unfamiliar territories through improvisation, collaborating on equal footing to explore the abstract and poetic in music and dance.
Based on structures of improvisation, Kara Miller's Mango Dream is an ensemble work inspired by stories passed on from grandmothers, mothers, and sisters with video installation design. Seconds is a telematic livestream performance.
Degrees of Separation (excerpts) explores layers, relationship, intimacy, exposure, the invisible, and body as land and water. The question of the body is geographical, spatial, empathic, and collective transmission through time and space. Collaboratively created by the Spinning Goats, a locally based collective founded in Hawaii in 2016.
