Featuring an architect and a fashion designer, The Moving Orchestra is back with a collaboration between music, movement, and design!
Virtually, you'll be able to see the architect's 3D modelling, hear the sound that the musicians designed, and wear the clothings that come out of this collaboration.
About The Moving Orchestra:
Learning from freeform improvisation practices in New York City as well as practices by groups such as the AACM (Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians), our practice investigates interdisciplinary improvisation. As our society faces greater division, we respond with a practice facilitating artists of different backgrounds not just to collaborate, but to improvise freely with each other, telling audiences the stories of our current time. As we workshop improvisation with a constantly growing, diverse number of artists, we gain further perspective on the essence of collective improvisation. We create performance experiences from artistic expression that derives from and highlights the way we as people interact with each other, thus bringing the audience and the performers together in an intimate collaboration. This combination allows us to create an experience for the audience that constantly transforms, resonating with their immediate context.
