Liz Phillips, a pioneer of interactive sound and video installation art, explores the body electric, ground, and tides to reveal a fragile ecosystem. In this performance, titled  “Biyuu” (a Japanese word which mimics the sound of bamboo bending in the wind) Liz teams up with Butoh Dancer, Mariko Endo Reynolds, to  bring to stage their investigation of the body in both potential energy fields in the sound lab and  with dynamic and radical events in nature—bamboo, tall reeds and water—recorded first at the Edith Read Animal Sanctuary.

On stage Mariko’s body will become an antenna as she shifts shape, moving near ground and reaching out.  Her body will act as a conductor and the space around her will be activated, responding in sound and light changes.  Liz will translate, transpose and shift spectrums, activating water, sound and color formations as projections fall on coil forms that hold translucent paper scrims. The paper will act sometimes as the loudspeaker, at other times as a sensor. As Mariko performs, she will move the coils and a weather balloon to capture images and transform the stage. Seen and unseen waves of water, sub audio, audio, radio frequency, ultrasonic and light will become tactile material as Liz creates a hypersensitive 3-d sound and video installation which reinvents the performance landscape.
