Gloss is a story of finding one's queerness through the lens of ecology. Join artists Willow and Skye as they guide you on a journey that blends theatre, visuals, song, and music made in collaboration with plants and fungi to explore the messy, non-binary truth of nature and humanity. How do we construct ourselves? How do we name what we are? Dive into the chaos of living, and explore a surreal reality crafted within this space of science and art.
In this performance, plants and fungi create a sonic landscape through biosonification, which involves turning processes within living organisms into music and sound. Electrodes attached to organisms allow them to "play" digital instruments and synthesizers on the performer's laptop. After the performance, time is held for a short Q&A and a chance for audience members to try biosonfication for themselves.
