Live audio-visual performance, and a synthesis of sense, sound and surrounding.
May 13th – 7:30pm, 8:45pm, 10:00pm
Torn Space Theater – 612 Fillmore Ave. Buffalo
Buffalo-based collective Groupwork exports and adapts their underground approach to experiential design, widening the scope and slowing the pace. Known for their ecstatic curated pop-up rave experiences, Groupwork will translate their model for this Torn Space experience. Expect an activated environment, a live audio-visual performance, and a synthesis of sense, sound and surrounding. Contributors include Zachary Brown, Alexander French, Joshua Gruder, Alex Morrison, Frank Napolski, Dan Neveu, Travis Poling, and Max Smith.
We situate between sinews of sound
to peer through the point of compensation
in a familiar orientation
and glimpse a world beyond sight.
An observer, apart and a part,
views the euphotic outlet, a column,
a new perspective.
A heavy ride at a moving wall.
