KA BAIRD: ESPYLACOPA (A REVERSAL IN THREE ACTS)

May 11 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

| 12-15
Ka Baird

For her ISSUE debut, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Ka Baird presents Espylacopa (A Reversal In Three Acts), an interdisciplinary collaborative work that incorporates organic and processed sounds, human voice, projected and ambient lighting with performance art, sculpture and movement. Espylacopa, the reverse of apocalypse, takes the form of a ritual contextualized as a performance conjured to reverse current, unwanted processes or trends to flow in an intended direction.
The piece is presented in three acts: Embodiment, Incantation and Transfiguration. Baird’s collaborators include Camilla Padgitt-Coles (light design/synthesizer), Muyassar Kurdi (movement), Chris Penalosa (modular synthesis), Thistle Jemison (harp) and Sandy Gordon (vibraphone).
