In STATE, a small society manifests itself through ritual dances, music, and costumes. Ingri Fiksdal’s provocative collaboration with Danish director Jonas Corell Petersen introduces the critical role that ritual performs in the creation—and flourishing—of the state, as well as its continuing relevance today. The atmospherically dense design of STATE is co-created by noise/extreme metal artist Lasse Marhaug and Danish avant-fashion designer Henrik Vibskov. Marhaug’s score fluctuates between acoustic sound and sound from instruments that he built specifically for STATE—all of which is then processed through various electronic devices. Vibskov’s costumes consist of five large structures that double as scenography and transform the dancers’ bodies and abilities to move.
Presented in partnership with the Departments of Fashion Design, Exhibitions, and Performance, and the Fashion Resource Center of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and IN>TIME 19.
The February 10 performance has an optional live audio description for patrons who are blind or have low vision.
