A Faint Existence is a powerful physical meditation on impermanence, fragility and mortality in the age of climate change. Kristina Chan’s performance explores the enormous impact our existence en masse as a geophysical force. It speaks to our microcosmic existence on a macrocosmic scale, as a singular body encounters elemental forces and physical transformations.
Through precision, intuition and exceptional physical virtuosity, Chan uncovers our complex connection to the environment, our desire to make change, and the feelings of helplessness that derail our best intentions. Acclaimed composer James Brown creates a live electronic score that connects to the intricacies of the choreography in a shifting environment designed by Clare Britton.
