BAM Fisher – 321 Ashland Place, Brooklyn
Sound, light, voice, and movement orbit, collide, fuse, and repel to create a hauntingly evocative landscape of bodies turned inside out. A sequel to LEIMAY’s critically acclaimed piece BECOMING -corpus, borders sets stillness against high physicality and visceral vocalizations against sonic harmonies. Forms dissolve through walls of light and mutable axes of space. The stage morphs into a hanging valley of shadows and swelling interferences, enveloping the audience in a universe at the thresholds of itself. The world premiere of borders coincides with the release of a publication tracing LEIMAY’s creative process and an art exhibition featuring materials from past LEIMAY works.
