Livestreaming a performance of (UN)ROOTED
at The VORTEX in Austin, Texas
Corps Multiple, in partnership with The VORTEX in Austin, Texas, presents (UN)ROOTED livestreaming on the global, commons-based peer-produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Friday 14 December at 6 p.m. PDT (San Francisco) / 8 p.m. CDT (Chicago) / 9 p.m. EDT (New York) / 20:10 GMT+1 (London).
(UN)ROOTED is a performance opening a discussion on humanity’s deep, inherent need for belonging, roots, pairs, and marks. (UN)ROOTED reaches into our roots with struggle, entanglement, or rejection, in order to find peace within ourselves.
We all endlessly search for our family, our roots, our origins.
We all experience various degrees of orphanage, dealing with the different cycles of life.
We all want to be part of something, part of the group, part of society, part of the whole.
Moving bodies, sounds, text, and lights respond using the techniques of free improvisation to engage performers and audience into a spontaneous exchange. Composed of 3 pieces that will last 15-30 minutes each, the show will be followed by a Q&A to discuss the process behind the elaboration of this performance, opening the floor to deepen the discussion with the audience and special guests.
Musical, scenic and choreographic conception by Sandie Donzica and François Minaux.
Dancer: Sandie Donzica
François Minaux: Flutes, vocal
Bob Hoffnar: Pedalsteel guitar
Chris Demetriou: Percussion, melodica
