Secondary Dominance Sarah Small

About the show

World Premiere / Multimedia Concert

Sarah Small, a master of sonic moving images, multi-genre artist and creator of The Delirium Constructions, invites you to an evening of highly improbable intimacy exploring the interpersonal quests of diverse personalities. In 13 micro-movements, she synthesizes genres from Balkan folk to contemporary chamber, industrial, renaissance, rock, rap, and punk, while interweaving live and recorded electronics, Chinese sheng, strings, winds, and densely packed vocals. Working in her signature Tableau Vivant form, the music is complemented by gestural choreography and projections, including the world premiere of Black Sea Hotel's first music video. Secondary Dominance is a unique multimedia experience that unfolds as lush living pictures rife with honesty and mistakes, ferocity and hilarity.

Secondary Dominance is a part of our fifth annual PROTOTYPE Festival, co-produced with Beth Morrison Projects. For more information on the artists, works and events in this year's festival please visit the PROTOTYPE website.
