Thursday, June 12, 2014
Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor
Swoon presents Submerged Collaborations
, a night of film and performance. The evening begins in the Cantor Auditorium with a screening of Flood Tide
, a fictional film set within Swoon's Swimming Cities
project on the Hudson River and directed by her frequent collaborator Todd Chandler.
The film is followed by a talk with Swoon and her collaborators on several large-scale projects, who will provide insights into their work and how an ambitious community can create the synergy to expand possibilities for action.
Finally, join in a silent procession from the auditorium to the Cantor Rotunda for a performance in sound and light created in conversation with Swoon's new, site-specific installation Submerged Motherlands
. The performance features The Submerged Motherlands Orchestra, with singer-songwriter Mirah
, musician Marshall LaCount (of the bands XXXPRSNXXX
and Dark Dark Dark
), Todd Chandler, the band North America
