Tonight, Angie Eng presents her new work – Liminal, a series of live video/music cinepoems based on the concept of liminality. Eng combines inventive new tools like the VideoBass, French avant-garde experimental cinema tricks and customized music/video software for a genre-crossing collaboration which fuses experimental jazz, contemporary electronic music, neo-abstract expressionism, puppetry and live experimental cinema – featuring Audrey Chen, Shoko Nagai, Satoshi Takeshi and Nancy Meli Walker. Also tonight, Mari Kimura presents EIGENSPACE – new work for Augmented Violin (IRCAM) and interactive graphics commissioned by Harvestworks using IRCAM’s bowing motion sensor which is designed to interact with the specific diffusion system of the performance space.

Tonight she teams up with dancer Claire Filmon for a new piece using Simone’s News Animation technique – an improvisation in movement and language, drawing energy from the flickering fluid vision of the world brought to us by the news media.
