      UnderControl performative / interactive installation _ first prototype filmed at Schmiede 2014 UnderControl is a project about our lives under control, in every movement, breath, mood, way, intimacy and, of course, privacy. This hidden sharp violence of our personal paths throughout the traceability of each action we do through a digital world and the extremely huge amount of infos, we freely give about our-selves in our everyday life. With this starting point the idea is to recreate a small scale space inspired by the Panoptic of Foucault where the human eyes of control will become - in an opposite prospective- different shooting eyes of the cameras and the live-recording will display a stream on the screens for an active audience. The body will still dance in this small space with this specific condition, trying to define how we feel under control. The challenge is to research and find the poetic depth in these particular conditions coming from inspiration of our age of digital control, where the“eyes”are potentially everywhere, being not really aware of what are exactly all the consequences of this present and probably more intensive future conditions. The audience is free to look at the body, the screen and/or at different screens at any time and at the same time. concept & dance Livia Marques.

                    A multi-media collaboration by PO1: dance/choreography Michelle Lai, dance/choreography Heyward Bracey and video artist Kio Griffith. This piece examines the relationship between self and other, idea and truth, ideals and instincts. Democracy as an idea or ideal suggests a framework for transformation. There is the question of choice, how we choose to remember our struggles, & subconsciously embody histories. -- 16 Faces was developed as a part of the 2014 “T Memorial” event (a commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre in Beijing China) at ARC in Pasadena, California. This piece led a multi-cultural cast of collaborators through a process of self and cultural reflection upon the iconic 1989 catastrophe between student democracy protestors and the Chinese government. The process involved interviewing U.S. residents immigrated from Hong Kong, collaborative discussions with the Hong Kong Forum (a democracy/human rights advocacy organization) as well as more immediate explorations of what it means to be to be an American of color, confronting discrepancies in the application of justice and democracy here within our own daily lives.
