Description

THE PERFORMANCE: Exit the echo chamber- is a multimedia performance centered around original poetry of Hussam Jefee-Bahloul, a Syrian poet, writer who lives in America. The poems merge with original electric musical scores by composer and cellist George Crotty. An installation of a video art piece by Syrian artist Khalil Younis ties the creative elements together in one multi-sensory experience. The performance elicits an experience that explores themes of- time, change, loss, war, and exile. It does it through creative elements that transcend the collective/public into the singular/private.

What to expect

50 min performance, dark atmosphere with projected video art, cello/electric music, and poetry read loud and soft.

Why is this happening?

The idea began with poetry, and how to present it in a new way. The project wants to liberate the poetic voice from the tyranny of paper. The project represents a series of different collaborations between poets and artists. The multifaceted nature of this experience invites all three creative forms to transcend imposed creative boundaries and offer new experiential nuances.
