28th February - 3rd March
The Weight of Air is a sound installation and dance performance that reframes the environmental phenomena of smog rising over a city as an act of activism; protest born of exhaustion and fatigue. This piece accesses the ways in which we communicate on levels that are not always knowable to an everyday cognizance-- the ways in which a spiritual, ephemeral space can be excavated. The installation explores presence as a catalyst for action, and the polarizing ends of fatigue and resilience in the human body, popular protest, light, and sound.
