Special Performance: OMBLIGO II

A Performance by Ombligo Project (Faults, Pei-Ling Kao, & Andrej Hronco)

Performing in non-traditional venues including outdoor sites chosen for aspects of water, aridity, toxicity, and layered land use tangling identities of built and natural space, Faults combine improvised electroacoustic music with dance movement and generative visuals. Considering creative practice as a way to understand individual and collaborative interactions within systems, the group is interested in what dialog might emerge from performing in the context of San Francisco Climate Week.

For this performance at Swissnex in San Francisco, Faults (Jorge Bachmann, Jaroba, Kevin Corcoran, and Gabby Wen) will activate the space by setting up in positions according to cardinal points while dancer Pei-Ling Kao moves throughout the space at Pier 17, and artist Andrej Hronco projects live visuals modeled after desert geology and light refractions from bodies of water.
