"...But most people use social media not to unite, not to open their horizons wider, but on the contrary, to cut themselves a comfort zone where the only sounds they hear are the echoes of their own voice, where the only things they see are the reflections of their own face. Social media are very useful, they provide pleasure, but they are a trap."

WHISPERS IN THE AIR
WHAT: Collaborative performance duo Autumn Kioti + Katy Gunn respond to the works of Sol Kjok and Peter Max-Jakobsen.
Here, using vocal, physical, instrumental, and aerial elements, Autumn and Katy create sacred space in which they explore the depths of identity, reflecting on those those things that connect us as collective beings, and define us as individuals. Together they ask, where do I/you end, where do you/I begin?

COME BE PART OF THE MOMENT!
We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.”
― Henry Beston
