MOTHS: Movement to Modular Synthesis
This audience-interactive event is an experiment in interdisciplinary improvisation. MOTHS will feature an 1 hour improvised modular synth performance from Limanjaya (Joshua Limanjaya Lim) alongside a physical improvisation/meditative movement/dance by attendees co-facilitated by Dasha Shleyeva and Wilder Rose. We have reserved a small number of spots for those just wishing to listen in stillness for whatever reason.
