Keisha Janae & Ben Lamar Gay
Keisha Janae resides in Southshore, Chicago. Graduate of Columbia College Chicago’s Dance program, she has experience in performance, teaching artistry, and dance making.
Ben LaMar Gay is a composer/cornetist who moves components of sound, color, and space through folkloric filters to produce brilliant electro-acoustic collages.
The piece is titled Fire “Scapes”. The duo’s performance explores the rural ear inside of urban soundscapes and the urban ear inside of rural soundscapes, manifesting how the body listens and responses to its environment.
Ayako Kato & Jason Roebke
Art Union Humanscape (AUH) duo, Ayako Kato (dance) & Jason Roebke (double bass) creates a sonic and kinetic landscape meditatively superimposed with silence and stillness. Their ritualistic performance is grounded on experimental performance and the aesthetics of furyu, Japanese for “wind flow,” as it relates to cyclical transformation, human motion in nature, and cosmic ephemera.
The piece is titled ‘Eclipse’.
