The Bemis Center for Contemporary Art | May 5, 2016
Juliana Snapper debuts her newly commissioned work, A lot of time is needed…to give chaos some style, in response to Bemis Center’s Time + Space: Beginnings exhibition. Snapper, a Liveness Is Critical resident, uses voice, breath, and momentum as tools for instrumentation. The audience and Snapper will participate in a series of breath-moving exercises as she considers bacteria and breath as the elemental beginnings that form an oxygenated environment. An improvised aria, intuitive vocal techniques engaging different pitches, chords, and rhythms, and a whole lot of dry ice both direct and trace moving breath through a palette of emotion-triggering frequencies.
