Join us for an international evening with emerging female artists Dominique Leclerc (Canada), Dr. GoraParasit (Lithuania) and female-identifying and gender non-binary artist LaJuné McMillian (New York). The artists explore contemporary technology like Virtual Reality, Physical Computing, worldwide cyborg and transhumanist movements.
Dominique Leclerc (Montréal) is an author, co-stage director and actress in Post Humains, first produced in 2017 in Montreal at Espace Libre where it was presented again in 2019, then toured across Quebec, at the Carrefour International de Théâtre de Québec and at Festival of International New Drama (FIND) at Schaubühne, in Berlin. Post Humains was a 2018 finalist of the Michel-Tremblay award which honors the best text transposed on stage. The play is published by L’instant même editors.
LaJuné McMillian (New York City) is a New Media Artist, and Creative Technologist creating art that integrates Performance, Virtual Reality, and Physical Computing to question our current forms of communication. LaJuné has had the opportunity to show and speak about their work at Pioneer Works, National Sawdust, Leaders in Software and Art, Creative Tech Week, and Art && Code’s Weird Reality.
Dr. GoraParasit (Lithuania) is a female theatre, performance and film director, lecturer, methodologist, set designer, and a member of WIF (Women In Film, USA). Her conceptual esthetical interests lie in the depths of the net, the act of browsing in itself is an infinite cognitive journey of collecting and identifying audio-visual experiences by which one learns about the world—through which they recreate a sense of self and collective identity. Her work is best illustrated by the performances/films such as Electric Dreams (Israel), Psycho (Lithuania), La Psycho (Los Angeles), Self-fles (Rome) and many others where cognitive, digital sciences & faking becomes a tool for creativity and continues performative acts.
