Directed and conceived by Laura Chiaramonte, CORPOREAL is an evening length performance installation featuring new work by artists and collaborator, Janet Chiaramonte. Laura is excited to be to be working with her mother for the first time. Janet’s unique designed installation provides a beautiful landscape depicting the use of Art and Chemistry, resulting in varying monoprints using an oxidation process to create organic imagery.
The performance aspect of the installation confronts the question of the bodily consciousness by capturing the audience and introducing them to the struggles between communal and personal identity. Throughout the evening, we will discover the constant motion of all things, melting and forever changing into different forms, living, adapting and conforming to the space.
The development of the movement vocabulary is in collaboration with and will be presented by Chicago dance artists; Isabelle Collazo, Jessica Cornish, Momar Ndiaye, Amanda Pesch, Becky O’Connell, Amy Swanson, Lesley Werle, and Vienna Willems. The live soundscape will be performed by composer Jason Araujo and Barmey Ung, providing a layer of connectivity, and creating a sense of holding space.
