Dir. Christine Kaaloa
installation video, performance & sound works
and the human body is a universal instrument of communication, like a mouth...everything
it utters, whether minute or banal is an awakening of speech."
Symphony addresses the deconstructive exploration of movement-based languages which enables and codifies socialization and thus, creating sound through its silence. With a background in dance, Ms. Kaaloa’s Symphony explores the deconstructed poetic use of language through movement that shifts and shapes society through its banal and everyday pedestrian gestures and expressions. Originally conceived as a performance-video installation, Symphony can be screened as a stand-alone video piece (w/ or w/o audio).
