Samita Sinha: Tremor
Artist and composer Samita Sinha brings Tremor to Danspace Project for its NYC premiere. In Tremor, Sinha voices 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.
Committed to the emergent, Tremor is the practice 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 tradition.” The profound materiality of the work comes from Sinha’s practice of decomposing, distilling, and transforming Indian vocal traditions through the body to emerge 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.”
Tremor is co-commissioned by Western Front and Danspace Project.
