Samita Sinha: Tremor

Thursday, November 9 | 7:30PM
Friday, November 10 | 7:30PM
Saturday, November 11 | 7:30PM


Artist and composer Samita Sinha brings Tremor to Danspace Project for its NYC premiere. In Tremor, Sinha vocalizes in relationship to a live, sonic environment conjured by composer Ash Fure, within a space designed by architect Sunil Bald, and is joined by performer Okwui Okpokwasili.

Sinha’s practice of decomposing, distilling, and transforming Indian vocal traditions through the body to develop elemental sonic material—and a kind of language—”that contains potentials to reconfigure the ground of being and relation, challenge what knowledge is, and open new forms of embodiment and collaboration.” Sinha asks, “how can we reactivate our sense of vibration and our relationship to life itself, which have been numbed and distorted by coloniality and modernity? How can our embodied voices be vessels through which to hear the cries of the world, repair the fabric of interconnection, and open into generative wilderness and vast possibility? How can we relearn to listen?”

Tremor is an emergent practice and performance of attuning and performance of attuning to the raw material of vibration, and unfolding possibilities that arise through encounter—with other beings, and with the material of sound itself. Sinha explains, “Tremor opens a sentience that is neither western in origin, nor limited by dogmas of Eastern tradition.” 

Tremor is co-commissioned by Western Front (Vancouver, BC) and Danspace Project.


Tremor runs approximately 60 minutes with no intermission.
