SOMA 2020 – CONTACT
February 28 @ 8:30 pm PST$20.00 – $25.00
CONTACT is a performance about bodies coming together and becoming undone through sound, movement, touch, and play. Bodies encounter other bodies, whether human-animal or material, whether fabric or image or nature’s detritus. CONTACT occurs through the unexpected, which brings risk and joy while inviting stillness and presence and the unknown.
CONTACT is brought to you by SOMA 2020, aka Magdalena Edwards & Sohani Holland & special guests, including the live performance audiovisual alchemists Peter Johnson x Amy Zimmitti (Giedion | Kirscher, Coredark Laboratories), and multidisciplinary artist Amanda Maciel Antunes. CONTACT happens before the eyes of the audience and performers, a shared experience of consciousness through layers of containment, contrast, conflict, and connection.
Magdalena Edwards – a Visiting Scholar at UCLA’s Latin American Institute – is a writer, actor, and translator obsessed with hybridity, border-crossings, and the creative process in all its public intimacies. Sohani Holland is a Los Angeles-based artist and creative director who uses performance and textiles as mediums for documenting and storytelling. Magdalena & Sohani are SOMA 2020.
