Parable Path A2Ypsi:
The Infinite Detail of This Place & Time
Virago and The A.W.E. Society

 

The Infinite Detail of this Place & Time is a participatory microcinema for the here and now. Revel with us in dreamlike projections and sonic interpretations of the world around us.

Audience members will be invited to participate in a foraging exercise in the area around the Ypsi Freighthouse. Collect city weeds, newspaper scraps, twigs, mushrooms, and other items that will be transformed into simple assemblages. These small assemblages will create immersive projected environments that Virago will use as a visual score, interpreting them into a unique sonic experience on cello, saxophone, violin, and percussion — inviting viewers to bask in the mysterious and awe-inspiring details of this unique place and time.

Virago

Virago is a new voice in classical music. Marked by intense chemistry and resistance to creative norms, Virago melds free improvisation and contemporary chamber music into a contagious headspace of out-of-the-box expression. This unusually instrumented quartet improvises through collaborations with composers, audience members, visual artists, and musicians across genres, marking the path for the future of chamber music.

The A.W.E. Society (Area Wilds Exploration Society)

Bridget Quinn is an artist, activist, and experimental urban nature guide who uses participatory and performative methodologies to invite people to reconnect with nearby nature using their senses and imaginations. Under the moniker, The A.W.E. Society, she creates creative ceremonies that invite participants and collaborators to play within the borderlands between nature and culture, between the psyche and the environment–realms that are not distinct, but instead are completely interwoven. Her work is concerned with rediscovering vernacular landscapes as multi-species commons and the sites of reciprocal healing between self, community, and environment.
