The Other Shore (TOS) is a multidisciplinary project of 360 videos, performance, installation that combine dance, art objects, sound and video created in collaboration with the artists. TOS shifts eurocentric relationships between audience and performer by changing the physical orientation of viewing. TOS expands the possibilities of how we relate to our perceptions, power, and ritual through distinct performance “spaces” that exist simultaneously. Rehearsals will happen in Seattle and LA.
