Opening Sunday, October 14th, from 1PM - 3:30PM

On view through Saturday, October 14th

Mt. Shamao is a reflection on the curling of ferns, absence, imperialism, and imagined utopias. The performance guides through the parallel beginnings of Chicago and Taiwan’s botanical gardens and the imported tropical paradises they attempted to create. Movement and tableau take over the room, choreography which alludes to the study of plants, the growth pattern of trees, and the disconnectedness of displaced plants. Through the structure of a tour, performance-movement, and data-driven sounds collected over the course of the installation, Milad Mozari and Mitsu Salmon work with an ensemble in contemporary dance, Butoh and breakdancing.
