Maile Colbert presents “Passageira em Casa” at Electronic Music Foundation, NY

Sunday, December 18, 2pm

Greenwich House Music School
46 Barrow St.
New York, NY
Admission: Free

Passageira em Casa is a multimedia performance inspired by concepts of home and migration. The narrative is a partially fictionalized and personalized account of the maritime history of Portugal, enacted by a dancer, a vocal performer, live video performer, live electronic composer, and other artists. The project is inspired by various texts related to maritime journeys and Portuguese history and culture.

In her presentation at EMF, Colbert will discuss her use of site-specific field recordings of tectonic plates, earthquakes, and tidal movements in the piece. She will also address how flora, fauna, constelations and maritime navigation techniques have influenced the work.
