In this performance\, titled&nbsp\;&nbsp\;&ldquo\;Biyuu &rdquo\; (a Japanese word which mimics the sound of bamboo bending in the wind) Liz teams up with Butoh Dancer\, Mariko Endo Reynolds\, to &nbsp\; bring to stage their&nbsp\;investigation of the body in both potential en ergy fields in the sound lab and &nbsp\;with dynamic and radical events i n nature&mdash\;bamboo\, tall reeds and water&mdash\;recorded first at th e&nbsp\;Edith Read Animal Sanctuary.\n\nOn stage Mariko&rsquo\;s body wil l become an antenna as she shifts shape\, moving near ground and reaching out. &nbsp\;Her body will act as a conductor and the space around her wi ll be activated\, responding in sound and light changes. &nbsp\;Liz will translate\, transpose and shift spectrums\, activating water\, sound and color formations as projections fall on coil forms&nbsp\;that hold transl ucent paper scrims. The paper will act sometimes as the loudspeaker\, at other times as a sensor. As Mariko performs\, she will move the coils&nbs p\;and a weather balloon to capture images and transform the stage. Seen and unseen waves of water\, sub audio\, audio\, radio frequency\, ultraso nic and light will become tactile material as Liz&nbsp\;creates a hyperse nsitive 3-d sound and video installation which reinvents the performance landscape.\n\nGeneral Admission: $15\nMembers/Students/Seniors: $10\nFree to all Roulette All-Access Members SUMMARY:Biyuu URL:/en/events/2012/06/02/biyuu/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
