Film by Kaz Rahman Premieres in Canada
Time-Based Art Lecturer Kaz Rahman is the Filmmaker and Art Director for the Multi-Media Performance work Digital Dervish + Flamenco Sonic by Hedy Hurban which will be having its North American premiere next Friday and Saturday Sept. 9 and 10 in Peterborough, Canada.
A livestream is available for the Saturday performance at 1pm.
Digital Dervish and Flamenco Sonic is a story about a Dervish who is in a dream and wakes up to birds and the sounds of nature- a Flamenco dancer notices and begins to move in similar patterns attempting to awaken him. They exchange their sounds and movements until they become intertwined in whirling. This is a story about landscape, earth, love and life that encompasses music, imagery and physical movement. The movements and gestures which are specific to these dance traditions are being highlighted and augmented with an original wearable device called the soundrop.
