mecca vazie andrews and the MOVEMENT movement present an immersive performance in dialogue with the work of Laura Owens.
Swimming through a collage of past events, [title] combines movement, sound, and projection to re-appropriate what once waswith abandon. In doing so, andrews re-imagines another possible future. As we collectively process and redefine the meaning of freedom, the artist invites participants to confront a new cycle of enlightenment fueled by necessary cultural friction, re-education, and evolution.
