Embodiology® at Work: Embodiology® at Play
May 2, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDTFree
The final performance for Dr. S. Ama Wray’s Spring 2018 Interdisciplinary Arts Residency will take place in the Chazen Museum of Art lobby. The performance involves 16 Embodiologists who come from a variety of disciplines: geography, visual art, music, engineering, computer science, dance, theatre, agriculture, performance art, and economics. Participants entered into the space of discovery through a dexterous examination of dynamic rhythm and fractal code, which are entry ways to an inter-sensory world of creativity. Bodies and minds coalesce, tango, reach out, and exhale in order to remember what it is to play. Eré in Yorùbá means to “play” or “investigate” and vu in Ewe points to multi-modal participatory events of song, music, and dance. Adding to the interactive essence of the performance is a digital terrain that unfolds imperceptibly throughout the 55-minute performance.
