HABITAT

Habitat is a multidisciplinary solo inspired by the life cycle of Hermit Crabs; a metaphor about my process of emigration to Canada. Hermit crabs don’t have a shell, instead they house themselves in objects according to their size. As they grow, their object becomes limiting and uncomfortable, so they migrate new ones. This multidisciplinary piece combines movement, voice with live electronics, a paper sculpture ‘Hermes’ (600 articulable paper cones), and lighting. All elements are controlled in real time by the performer serving as her shell, her Habitat. The lighting and sculpture create beautiful visual effects reminiscent of aurora borealis. All these elements, make of Habitat a hypnotic poetic experience with an aquatic eerie atmosphere.
