Sarah Kinlaw, Unboxing The Compass, Bending The Axis
Sun, Dec 2, 4:00 p.m.
Sarah Kinlaw is a composer, choreographer, and artist whose work explores power, memory, trauma, and connection. Unboxing The Compass, Bending The Axis, a new commission created and performed in collaboration with Kathleen Dycaico, Kellian Delice, Quenton Stuckey, and Tara-Jo Tashna, builds on personal experience to explore identity and complex emotional and physical bonds through a fusion of choreography, environment, and sound. The immersive performance environment features industrial fans, everyday objects equipped with microphones, and a stage treated with material textures chosen for the different sounds they make as performers move through them. By placing microphones on the stage, Kinlaw amplifies the sounds of the choreography itself, adding to the broader soundscape and integrating the movements and interpretations of the performers into the overall composition.
