Claim Your Place
A multimedia performance by Nuria Legarda, Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger
Open to the Public. Donations benefit the Topia Arts Center which is a not for profit organization. www.topiaarts.org
"Claim Your Place” is a video-installation created for large scale outdoor or indoor spaces that sits somewhere between filmmaking, theater-dance, digital art and sound design.
This project explores beauty, desire and violence. It emerged from an encounter between Nuria Legarda and Laia Cabrera, two innovate Spanish/Catalan artists and creators. The video installation performance surrounds the audience with real-time projections as well as pre-recorded ones, putting them center stage and takes the audience on a unique journey by merging cinematic art, dance, photography, theater and visual arts. The various physical and virtual elements of Claim Your Place creates a sensorial landscape of storytelling.
Music and Live sound by Erica Glyn and Nana Simopoulos
Artistic Collaborators Caryn Heilman and Aleksandar Kostic and Leo Castro
