ANIMALIA: STORIES OF COLLAPSE, CALAMITY AND DEPARTURE
A lyrical performance by C. Ryder Cooley, performed with Christine Shields, Pat Kadyk, Lissa Ivy Tiegel, Marina Luna and friends.
ANIMALIA is a lyrical performance with movement, projections and live music on singing saw, accordion and strings. Performed within a landscape of mesmerizing video and archival film, Animalia invokes visions of secret bee societies and haunted circus scenes. The performance offers metaphors of flight as departure points from environmental collapse and the hallucinatory effects of war. By appropriating the masculine power symbol of the buck 'rack' and reinserting it onto feminine characters, the narrative blurs the divisions between masculine/feminine identity and human/animal forms.
