Moving In Space III
The third iteration of our contemporary works in progress performance series features artists Seraah, Meghan Frederick, and Tyler Rai. This trio presents diverse approaches to performance with new works exploring the embodied human experience. Seraah inquires about mortality through kinesthesia, Frederick investigates dancing through pregnancy and motherhood, and Rai seeks to channel ancestral memory and futurist mythology in the body.
Seraah ( Isnard Dupoux ) is an interdisciplinary artist who is born, raised, and currently working out of Boston Ma. Throughout his work are his interests in the corporeal, ethereal, somatics, as well as the body as a conduit for myth-making/allegory. Seraah values the ephemera of performance which is often combined with intentional sound, light displays, voice both raw and manipulated, physical movement, and images both static and moving to create sensorial inquiries into time.
