Rain Lucien Matheke

 

Rain Lucien Matheke (she/they) is a self-described “queer, interdisciplinary, visual, and experimental sound artist living with a rare chronic illness, many plants, and a cat in Los Angeles.”  Utilizing a wide range of materials, Rain explores ideas of identity in relation to gender and the body.  Her artwork focuses particularly on the evolution of identity through illness, transition and magical practice.  As she reflects on the dualities of permanence and decay and acceptance and control, we are given glimpses of Rain and her life through this deeply personal work.

Come To Our Watch Party

Dance for Camera

December 4th at 7:30 pm 

CLICK HERE TO JOIN STREAMING BROADCAST 

The Dance for Camera Project Fall 2020 is a digital dance performance featuring new works by faculty and student choreographers. Due to COVID restrictions, the semester dance concert had to be completed reimagined. The Dance for Camera Project offers students a constructive learning experience that not only gets them performing this semester, but learning key skills about dancing remotely, performing for a camera, and editing together a final dance product to be shared.

This performance features ten choreographers each of whom have grappled with the COVID restrictions in different ways at varying levels of remote production. Two of the pieces were created 100% remotely in which the dancers learned the works through synchronous and/or asynchronous video rehearsals. Dancers then learned to film themselves with their own smart phones and upload the footage for editing and production.
