More Information

“Untitled Mood Lighting” explores the limits of isolation and uninhibited joy, and the psychic consequences we face when we unmute the excesses that animate our will to thrive. The performers adopt club lights as tools to help them construct portals to expand droning bedroom depression into fantasies of spotlit validation. As their explorations grow, they find limits of ecstatic embodiment and push up against self-annihilation and imagined realities of public exposure. Performers’ movements are built from private gestures they often use to self-soothe and pose a kind of resistance in a culture that either distracts from uninhibited embodiment or attempts to dissolve it.

Directed, Designed, and Co-Created by Isaac Pool.
Co-Created and Performed by Miriam Gabriel, Alexa Grae, Nina Guevara, and Sahar Sepahdari-Dalai.
