Andrea Ariel Dance Theatre and multimedia artist Yuliya Lanina are premiering new, innovative and multimedia performances of live music, dance, Soundpainting and animatronic sculpture with “Locked-in” and “This is a Test of the Internal Emergency Broadcast.” Both performances will run June 21 through June 24 at the Museum of Human Achievement (located behind Canopy Austin on Springdale Road).
“Locked-in” explores our relationship to our devices, and how they have changed, advanced and altered our world and our lives. Directed by award-winning choreographer Andrea Ariel, the new performance combines choreographed dance and live compositions of directed improvisations with original music composed by Andy Nolte.
The show opens with artist Yuliya Lanina’s premiere of “This is a Test of the Internal Emergency Broadcast System,” a 20-minute multimedia performance. Lanina’s animations, sculptures and live movement will be accompanied by original music by Vladimir Rannev, an award-winning Russian avant-garde composer. It explores the mechanized nature of human life and its state of perpetual unrest, all the while poking fun at our fascination with the dark and animalistic parts of the human psyche.
