ANIMA MAGNETA is a multi-media performance piece based on theories in David Abram's 1996 book The Spell of the Sensuous. Key themes discussed by Abrams are explored: the transformation of sensory awareness due to our immersion with technology, animism, and our symbol-induced alienation from nature. Choreographer Amy Lewis and sound artist Agnes Szelag interweave dance, video, and sound to create an experience of a surrogate reality where seemingly disparate ideas and dimensions suddenly coexist. The work will consist of three sections: video with movement, a live music quartet, and a dance duet. Get ready for time to shift and other worlds to appear. Created for the San Francisco International Arts Festival, 2019. Performance by Nick Brentley, Sonsheree Giles, Amy Lewis, Agnes Szelag, Laura Turiano, Kristina with video design by Omri Glaser.
