How can we as individuals act meaningfully in imbalanced systems?
Strings interconnects lights, sound, lasers, sensors and performers to explore our world of all-pervasive computation.
Systems breathe. We are in a constant flow with the social, cultural, technological world in and around us. Strings explores this feedback loop by giving performers the power to affect the light and sound, just as that platform affects them. In a living system of imbalanced control, you have to find meaning for your life, weighing those you might hurt or help and determining what is actually possible. You have to create and believe and anchor yourself, or else dissolve as the system breathes.
Strings is the product of a student-driven interdisciplinary performance technology arts incubator led by a team of faculty, staff, and students from Computer Science, Music, and Theater and Dance, and by professional Artistic Lead Magnus Pind Bjerre. Strings student researchers and project leaders are Colleen Wright ’19, Jay Huskins ’19, Jerry Diaz ’19, and JP Perales ’21.
This project was produced with generous support from the Center for Arts and Humanities.
Free and open to the public – tickets available at http://colby.edu/theaterdance or at the door.
