One moment. Infinity of possibilities. The violence of choice.

​​ToGetHer (by Francesca Jandasek) is a multimedia work exploring the before and after of a lifetime of moments between two people. ToGetHer includes movement and original artwork, music and text, which, when combined, create​ a unique amalgam of visual, aural and kinesthetic experiences​. The feel of this work alternates between an atmosphere of time-lapse and slow motion ​moments underscored by unique movement, which illustrates the story through connected vignettes. The sound​track punctuates the different movement vocabularies and the artwork is woven into the performance through video projections.

“Hi! I’m the Internet/Street Signs/your SmartPhone/Advertisements/Facebook/[insert other technology or media here], and I control your life. Would you like fries with that?”

In the face of virtual “online personas” and a technologically-driven consumer culture, where consumption, visual, physical and otherwise is encouraged, Me@t (by Stephanie Y Jolivet), a multimedia, solo performance asks the question, does a material female body stand a chance, or is she relegated to just another piece of meat? Using a cell phone, projected stills and video pulled from wanderings through virtual and material space together with contemporary movement, Me@t becomes an interactive performance where moving images, personal technology and bodily movement need each other to – transgress? uphold? redirect? reproduce?
