mörkö is an interdisciplinary performance integrating sound by Emma Hendrix and live animation and performance by Cindy Mochizuki with direction by James Long. Co-presentation with Vancouver New Music.
Lighting - James Proudfoot, Production Coordination - Asa Mori, Carmen Lam, Technical Direction - Elia Kirby.
Based on a collection of interviews from Vancouver residents around ‘monsters’, the artistic team builds a landscape using only the audio recordings and objects found in a basement closet of Mochizuki’s childhood home.
The sound and moving images shape a portrait of a city through the ‘monstrous’- a space, creature or thing of fear that we often conjure in our everyday lives when faced with the unknown.
