Following our showcase at the Audio Art Festival this past November in Krakow, Poland, Ryan Ingebritsen and I were invited to perform The Victory Project at Roulette, a prestigious center for experimental art in the United States that was founded in 1978 by Jim Staley, David Weinstein and Dan Sennthree composers to present concerts of music, dance and intermedia in a Tribeca loft.
We will be presenting The Victory Project as part of Roulette’s ComposerChoreographer series on March 22, 2013.
The Victory Project is an interactive duet installation between composer/electronic musician, Ryan Ingebritsen and performance/dance artist, Erica Mott. Victory Project presents a series of trans-disciplinary performances that incorporate interactive image, sound, text, movement and sculptural objects to dismantle allegories that confuse and conflate patriotism and perversity. Beginning with the inquiry into whether or not the concept of ‘victory’ is a gendered notion, the performances examine the female body as tool, symbol, bounty, and weapon during and post conflict.
Structurally the performance cultivates an interdependency between movement and sound, allowing the body to become musical instrument both dictating musical composition and moving in ways to serve the sonic score. The touring version of the Victory Project features choreography, object design and performance by Mott, sound composition and performance by Ingebritsen, interactive video design by John Boesche, light design by Todd Clark, and dramaturgy by Ginger Farley.
