Cornish Playhouse at Seattle Center
Seattle, WA
Share this event:


PYLON III, the final work in a trilogy of full-length dance performances choreographed by Coleman Pester of //TECTONIC MARROW SOCIETY, is an interactive performance that combines contemporary dance, live feed video projection and looming architectural set pieces to examine surveillance, identity, and oppression.The PYLON series examines complex systems of control using highly physical choreography, architectural set pieces, and a variety of analog and digital technologies altogether in a tense relationship.

In contemporary society humans live within complex and tangled systems that have been built or manipulated to enable some to have the disproportionate power and capital to manage populations. Whether it be the U.S.s expansive surveillance apparatus, the global economy, or the increasingly-corporatized milieu of the internet, these systems are incorporeal and, therefore, intangibly organised and managed. One can associate these systems with forms of the built environment as a way of physicalizing them, bringing them closer to the immediate senses. Our collaborative team calls these complex systems PYLON.

PYLON III is set in a semi-utopian environment where these oppressive systems have disintegrated, leaving only residues of their original structures. As in previous iterations, the question lingers: How do these various technological superstructures work on the human body? However, PYLON III differs from past iterations in its focus on hope, and how aspirations of equity and holistic healing can guide the way in constructing a better world built on the rubble of the previous one. At a juncture when our society is plagued by increasingly severe social, economic, and environmental crises, PYLON III is an exercise in healing as well as an unabashed call for an affirmative vision of the future when we desperately need one.

PYLON III features a diverse collaborative team representative of Seattles rich art community, including dancers David Rue, Cheryl Delostrinos, Erica Badgeley, Cameo Lethem, and Lucie Baker, and narration by actor Stefan Richmond. The performance will also feature sound design by Monika Khot (Nordra), set and visual media design by Alex Boeschenstein, wardrobe design by Connor Carrara, and tech design by Ben Chaykin.

Coleman Pester is a choreographer, dancer, interdisciplinary artist, and founder of //TECTONIC MARROW SOCIETY, a collaborative multimedia art platform with a focal point of contemporary dance. Pesters current practice investigates themes of identity, interrogation, observation, and architecture.

PYLON III is made possible through partial funding support by Timothy Tomlinson, residency support through Seattle International Dance Festivals James Ray Residency Program, and generous contributions by Photon Factory design studio.

RECOMMENDED FOR AGE 12 AND UP.
