i have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night

Rachel Arianne Ogle’s i have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night is an immersive installation of improvised light and sound. A single human body becomes an abstracted focal point —a disembodied drishti — within an unfolding science fiction odyssey.

The work explores states of transition and the synergy between light, sound and the body, offering audiences a meditation on time, perspective and the moment of death. Developed through in depth collaboration and a residency at the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Centre (EMPAC) in New York, Rachel Arianne Ogle, Luke Smiles and Benjamin Cisterne have created a transcendental experiment in design. In the performance an external feed of radio communications and cosmic chatter manipulates both light and sound in real time. i have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night is a choreography of perception. The audience witness a body in liminal space distorted by the media that surrounds it, becoming mesmerised by the hypnotic sensory experience of contemplation and transformation.

i have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night is part of a double bill with Memoir for Rivers and The Dictator. Tickets for this show enable entrance to both.

Presented by The SUBSTATION as part of Dance Massive 2019.
