Description Meditative stillness, physical extremity, and immersive video converge in Becoming – Corpus stage production: a kinetic experience of altered time and space, tracing the transformations among beings, the individual, and society. The body becomes an interface between what may be expressed and the realm of what is ultimately inexpressible. Becoming – Corpus also encompasses a visual art installation in the BAM Fisher’s Peter Jay Sharp Lobby and a book related to the production.
LEIMAY: Ximena Garnica & Shige Moriya is the duo behind CAVE, the New York Butoh Festival, and the Williamsburg SOAK festival. Comprising photography, video art, installation, and dance, and often involving interdisciplinary collaborations and training projects, LEIMAY’s sculptural, video, and light installations and contemporary performances are rooted in the body, integrating instinct-grounded choreographies and mesmerizing environments. Their performances juxtapose sound, video, light, and movement to create multi-sensory experiences that range from wild physicality to contemplative silence.
