Entomo at 'Night Light: a multimedia garden party'
It is known that insects are attracted by light. This light-inspired evening has attracted the contemporary dance performance Entomo and the works of 20 artists.
SOMArts Cultural Center presents Night Light: A Multimedia Garden Party on Friday, April 27 from 8:00pm to midnight. Night Light spotlights digital art and cinematic projections, ambient sound experiences, and other luminous installations that the audience discovers as a cascade of illuminations linking the gallery, gardens and bamboo grove at SOMArts.
The evening features work by more than 20 local artists as well as a contemporary dance performance by EA&AE ElíasAguirre&Álvaro Esteban (Entomo: Where insects and humans come together) and a live performance for Low Lives 4 Networked Performance Festival. Low Lives performances from around the world will be broadcast in real time in the SOMArts Main Gallery from 8:00pm to 9:00pm.
Entomo is a duet where contemporary and urban dance mix their own technique to create an animal and insect movement.
Where insects and humans come together. Through a magnifying glass we observe two small creatures, and the microcosm that surrounds them. They may be humans; they may be insects. Territoriality, the conquest of spaces.
This 12-minute piece by the Spanish choreographic duet has won 1st prize at the Burgos-New York contest (Spain, 2010); 1st prize at the Ibero American Dance Contest Alicia Alonso (2010, Cuba) for the "maturity with which it was conceived […] by an original and daring duo that arouses many existential and philosophical implications in the audience." Entomo is also a recipient of Audience Prize and Superior Dance conservatory Proze at Madrid Contest (2009) and 3rd Prize at the Capturadanza dance-video contest (Madrid, 2010).
