Our twen­ty-fourth edi­tion opens with a pro­gram of quo­tid­i­an traces, recom­posed con­tem­pla­tions of per­son­al and social space; fea­tur­ing Asha She­shadri, Valeri Mari­na and a trio per­for­mance of would­n’t have to hurt” by claire rousay with more eaze and Mar­ilu Donovan.

claire rousay is based in San Anto­nio, Texas. Her music zeroes in on per­son­al emo­tions and the minu­ti­ae of every­day life — voice­mails, hap­tics, envi­ron­men­tal record­ings, stop­watch­es, whis­pers and con­ver­sa­tions — explod­ing their significance.

Asha She­shadri moves freely between video, writ­ing, sound, and pho­tog­ra­phy. Her forms flow togeth­er to cre­ate unpre­dictable obser­va­tions of the over­looked, while doc­u­ment­ing per­son­al and polit­i­cal net­works with­in our col­lec­tive, imper­fect mem­o­ry. She cur­rent­ly lives and works in New York.

Valeri Mari­na is from Bolivia and cur­rent­ly liv­ing in Cana­da. Her work revolves around the explo­ration of sound from her migrant jour­ney and the expe­ri­ences that have crossed her. Ecol­o­gy, pol­i­tics, spir­i­tu­al­i­ty, mul­ti­sen­so­ri­al­i­ty are some top­ics she is walk­ing with.
