[HvEXAS] EMPAC | SAVE THE DATE! Filament festival - October 1-3, 2010


OCTOBER 1 – 3, 2010


Filament is a festival of new work in performance, visual arts, sound and media.

The festival highlights works that were created in tandem with EMPAC's mission to support national and international artists in the production of new work via its residency and commissioning programs. 

Six performances and installations will be premiered, including:

  • MTAA (NYC): a barn raising driven by audience participation
  • Hans Tutschku (Cambridge, MA): a 24-channel immersive sound installation
  • BalletLab (Australia): choreographic hysteria based on cult behavior, embedded in a dense soundscape
  • Yanira Castro (NYC): dance, sound, and audience all contained within a 40 ft. oval of mulch
  • Early Morning Opera (LA): evangelistic jumbotron diatribe on the dissolution of national borders
  • DANCE MOViES Commission: five videos and installations at the intersection of dance and the moving image

Filament will also unveil a program of commissioned short-form performance works across the spectrum of dance, theater, music, and the visual arts. Participating artists include: Wally Cardona; SUE-C & Laetitia Sonami; Jen Denike; Yehuda Duenyas; Sam HillmerMiro Dance Theatre; MTAA; Steve Cuiffo, Trey Lyford & Geoff Sobelle.
