Hector Canonge presents “MELANKHOLIA” in COLLABFEST 2016


Hector Canonge , RU Alumn

Presents "MELANKHOLIA" at COLLABFEST 2016, Triskelion Arts, NYC (November 4, 8 PM)

Guest artist with "TEMPORAL" in the Bienal Internacional SIART 2016, La Paz, Bolivia (On view until November 24)

Hector Canonge will premier "MELANKHOLIA" in COLLABFEST 2016 at Triskelion Arts in New York City (Nov. 4). The new work, with musical composition by Sound Artist, Gregory Paul, is a multidisciplinary performance informed by Butoh dance and electronic acoustics. MELANKHOLIA is a performance work that treats experiences of alienation, estrangement, and adaptation. Loosely based on a short story written by Canonge about his father's self imposed exile in Latin America, the piece is an allegory of self preservation, courage, and tenacity.

The artist's immersive performative installation "TEMPORAL" is currently on view in the International Biennial of Contemporary Art, Bienal Internacional de Arte, SIART 2016, in La Paz Bolivia. TEMPORAL gathers Live Action recorded in the northern glacial in Iceland and the largest river Dunes in the Bolivian Amazonian region. The installation also includes interactive platforms that allows users to experience geographical shifts and temporal GPS locations.
