Visionary Bring(h)ers, Future Tell(h)ers, 2018
Interactive Performance with custom garments, projection mapping, set design, and sound
A collaborative, interactive performance by Vanessa Centeno, Robyn LeRoy-Evans, Cristina Molina, and Ryn Wilson. Visionary Bringhers Future Tellhers is a hybrid between hallucinatory theater, performance art, Greek choral arrangements, and rhythmic spoken word. The performance was based on the figure of the Oracle from the 7th c. BC to the 4th c. AD who were seen as harbingers of truth and delivered matter of fact prophecies that impacted major decisions at the time. As a group of female artists we are amazed by a history that accepted women’s voices as law. In current times we see the new oracles of contemporary society as groups of people like The Silence Breakers. After all, these persons of the year existed as a chorus of mostly women who unveiled the traitors of good faith and good work. Since oracles bring prophecies of the future and demystify the present, our performance served as a platform for voicing contemporary concerns.
Made possible by funding from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant.
