Reactionary Ensemble & Nimbus Dance: SURROUND: VISUAL

Surround: Visual
December 8th at Asbury Hall in Babeville
341 Delaware Ave., Buffalo, NY

Surround: Audio/Visual is a brand new 2-part performance by the Reactionary Ensemble commissioned as part of Beyond/In WNY 2010. Reactionary Ensemble is a roving circuit of improvisational artists and musicians looking to merge sound and vision into an immersive, multidimensional experience. Fluid in nature, these sensory-based performances unleash streams of transitory sounds and visual images to stimulate a hypnotic, primordial, trance-like state of spontaneous free association.

Surround: Visual is the final performance of Beyond/In WNY. The show will feature a 40-ft diameter screen surrounding the audience designed by architect Brad Wales. The screen will have 8 different live mixed videos projected onto it mixed by 8 different video artists utilizing the same audio data from the instruments.

Reactionary is also working with dance company nimbus dance, following the successful collaboration radio/ACTIVE at this summer’s Infringement Festival. The dancers will wear Wiimotes to track their motion data, which will also be converted into visual data for the video artists to work with.

Surround: Visual will feature over 25 artists, including dancers Elyssa Bourke, Erin Bahn, Beth Elkins, Nancy Hughes, Laura Matteliano, Angela Lopez, Leanne Rinelli and Bonnie Jean Taylor, video artists Cory Gath, Courtney Grim, Liz Knipe, Carl Lee, Jeff Maciejewski, Tammy McGovern, Brian Milbrand and Vince Mistretta, and musicians Jim Abramson, Kathleen Ashwill, Steve Baczkowski, Michael Basinski, Gabe Beam, Kevin Obrien Cain, Jenece Gerber, Mike Kimaid, Keir Neuringer, KG Price and T. Andrew Trump and Stage Director Melissa Shanahan.
