Roulette: Muyassar Kurdi - Vast Geographies
Event by Roulette.
2020 Roulette Commissioned Artist Muyassar Kurdi presents Vast Geographies— a ritual exploring ecology, movement in stillness, walking, embodiment, and sound as liquid architecture. It is a meditation on traveling and awareness through movement where there are no borders—only boundless geographies in a sea of graphic scores and earthly materials. Opening with the sensual and urgent short dance film Vast Geographies, variation 3 (16mm to digital) directed by Kurdi and performed by Eryka Dellenbach, the screening will be followed by a concert with Luke Stewart on bass and Kurdi on voice and electronics. The works in total present a cinematic and interdisciplinary performance centered on presence and space.
Vast Geographies was originally scheduled for Spring 2020 but was postponed and rescheduled due to Covid-19. Roulette’s Fall season will be presented virtually and available for free on a variety of streaming platforms. Our theater is currently closed for public performances as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and the safety measures that Roulette has put in place to keep staff, artists, and the public safe.
