Artheism is the dance/drawing hybrid performance art of Topher Sipes and Samantha Beasley.
Blurring the lines between performance, conceptual, visionary and fine art, Artheism occurs when Sam and Topher combine their experience and love for dance, drawing, observation and sensation.
Drawn light is projected directly onto a dancing body providing an optical interplay between improvisation and choreography set to music. When Sam and Topher combine drawing and dance, they go into a "drance", their energies are combined, focused and shared with viewers so that all present may explore emotive terrain collectively.
Without relying on prerecorded visuals or audio sensitive software, visual syncopation is achieved by drawing rhythmically - no performance can be duplicated, only raw, live expression is permitted.
