Ubuntu: Reception & Performance

Thursday June 26, 2014 – 6:30-8:00pm

For their Present Box exhibition, Sabin Aell, Candess Giyan, and Daughter Cells Dance will turn BMoCA’s lounge into Ubuntu, an immersive art installation and stage for a series of interactive performances. The term “Ubuntu” refers to a need for human kindness and the belief in a universal bond, or an unspoken truth, of sharing that connects all humanity. The work critiques our society’s collective tendencies toward over-saturation and desensitization. It provides a vehicle for both viewer and performer to connect through a multiplicity of expressive art forms: dance, costume-design, visual installation, spoken text, and, perhaps most importantly, breath. For each performance the viewer enters a live art field as an active participant. Ubuntu is the coming together of witness and performer in a process that creates impact though the momentary presence of each individual in the shared space of BMoCA.
