Jakob Marsico & Chris Carlson: Body Drift

November 3, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - November 4, 2017 @ 9:00 pm

“Body Drift” is an immersive audiovisual performance that uses video-driven animation and multi-channel sound to examine the subtle shifts that take place in the development and degradation of sensory perception.

The work aims to examine our unnoticed drifts in perception over time by creating moments of realization and convergence through sound and pattern. The piece will structurally mirror our growth and evolution of perception with age.

Multiple performers will be on stage sitting or standing in a custom-fabricated rig. From a distance they will appear to be still. As the performance evolves, it will become apparent that the performers are moving on a micro scale; their movements are being captured and magnified on the large projection screens.

There will be a reception on both November 3 and 4 at 6:30pm, followed by the performance at 7:30pm in Kresge Theatre. An informal master class with Jakob Marsico and Chris Carlson, providing a backstage look at the technologies behind ‘Body Drift’, takes place immediately following the performances. “Body Drift” is presented as part of the wats:ON? Festival.
