[Custom Object] lip-sync//dance is a performance by Ambrose Trataris aka DestroyHerr that explores the transmission of knowledge and mutability of form between humans and their virtual avatars taking place on stage and simultaneously within virtual reality spaces. Two performers embodying virtual avatars will explore the expansive possibilities of the [trans]gender body through custom made avatars, intuitive movement, choreographed dance, and playful club banter. This work is made through the collaboration of Drag artists, as Drag evokes the Avatar in real life, further integrating the real and the fantastic in a liminal theatrical space. The first weekend (Sep 7-9) DestroyHerr will perform with BARRACUDA and the second weekend (Sep 14-16) they will perform with Skirt Cocaine.
In Digital Milk: Metaphase 0, Driven Arts Collective builds an immersive performance environment in which multi-sensory alternate realities are realized using a biosensing network and emotion-recognition technologies. Digital Milk: Metaphase 0 prompts perceivers to consider the implications of data privacy and the relationship between personal and collective protection.
