Becoming Corpus

Becoming – Corpus is the first chapter in The BECOMING SERIES. It is an ensemble dance performance and environment of 6-channel real-time videos and live electronic music that reflects on humanity’s constant state of transformation toward becoming. Movement and video lighting meet to create kinetic experiences of altered time and space, tracing the interwoven relationships and transformations among being, the individual and society.
