    SWARM! is a roving performance piece for musicians, dancers, and audience-responsive electronics based on the idea of a mysterious insect species that develops in the trash we humans discard everyday. They grow and molt and incorporate components of our waste into their bodies. They move and dance, and when the time is right, come together in an apocalyptic swarm.

    The 1-hr length piece took place all around the Linde Family Wing of the MFA. This video is edited from 3 synchronized cameras that documented the event.

    Musicians:
    The Fourth Wall Ensemble (thefourthwallensemble.com/)
    Hilary Abigana, flute and piccolo
    C. Neil Parsons, bass trombone
    Greg Jukes, percussion and accordion
    joined by
    Jacob Richman, trombone and electronics
    Kirsten Volness, accordion

    Dancers/Choreographers:
    Alyssa Coffin
    Angela Cole
    Jessika Davis
    Ellen Oliver
    Additional choreography by Nellie Rainwater

    Edited by Jacob Richman
