Becoming – Corpus is the first chapter in The BECOMING SERIES, it is an ensemble dance performance and environment of 6-channel real-time videos and live electronic music that reflects on humanity’s constant state of transformation toward becoming. Movement and video lighting meet to create kinetic experiences of altered time and space, tracing the interwoven relationships and transformations among being, the individual and society. Performance and exquisite design create a landscape where the body becomes an interface between what may be expressed and some other hidden realm of infinite potential that is ultimately inexpressible.
The BECOMING SERIES is a succession of multi-disciplinary works set in immersive environments and utilizing dance, theater, video projections and live music. The series deals with matter’s constant state of becoming through growth and decay, beginnings and endings. The BECOMING SERIES is a pentalogy.
