August 16, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 pm PDT


Premiering two pieces for bass drum and performative projection at the beloved Shapeshifters Cinema, now streaming from its new home on the Bret Harte Boardwalk.

Hard to Read is a new work directed by (and featuring the electronics and coding of) Tim Perkis. Together we animate and sonify his disarming and mysterious archive of human expression.

Surprised by Sin is a new work for for bass drum, liberation texts, and hand-held projections.

Pandemic-interrupted and racial justice reckoning-inspired, this set at Shapeshifters represents an act of holding space for truth and reconciliation and holding space for Black lives.
