Enter a full-body sensorium of live dance, counter-forensics and information overload. Timeless, Infinite Light presents CONTRAVERSE, an immersive environment and live performance by artist duo DROUGHT SPA (alex cruse + Kevin CK Lo) on the main stage of CounterPulse. In CONTRAVERSE, human-computer interaction mutates the visual and sonic landscape, activating a reverse Turing test: here the computers assess whether or not we are human. This event will also feature a subversive thrill-popping performance by XUXA SANTAMARIA (Sofía Cordova + Matthew Gonzalez Kirkland) and a tableau-vivant-style living installation by REBECCA HEIKKILA.
We’ve brought together these brilliant performers to celebrate the release of CONTRAVERSE, a new poetry book by alex cruse. Timeless will provide the spectacle, champagne, and some high-intensity Leo-season vibes. Dance, drink, re-map your relation to the grid, and seize control of your cyborg body.
