Ever trekked through a desert landscape, dived into sand dunes, listened to the sound of creatures living underground? You can feel this when exploring the synthetic desert landscape Ms. Coleman and her team of international artists have created. -- In a 70-minute journey through space and time, Grisha Coleman's performance installation, echo::system: The Desert, immerses audiences and performers in a fully synthetic environment comprised of audio and visual media, movement sensors and robotics mixed with live music, dance and performance. This interactive setting recreates a desert eco-system simultaneously made up of virtual and "real" space, displaying how one affects the other. To simulate the fluidity of the natural world, the sonic and technological elements of the installation constantly shift and regenerate as the story unfolds. This artificial desert landscape transpires into a futuristic tale of an ancient species that interfaces with its future. -- There will be a post-performance talk-back with actors and creative staff following the performances on September 12 and September 13.
