Everywhere is Anywhere

Video and performance work by Sara Condo

Tuesday, December 11 at 8:00 PM, $7-10

The Nightingale is excited to welcome multidisciplinary artist Sara Condo to present a selection of her video and performance work. Condo grapples with technology, landscape and feminism, finding unexpected meanings along the highways and byways of the United States. Trust the journey.

The program includes:

Everywhere is Anywherea scrolling landscape photograph and science fiction piece mourning the death of the “American Dream.” The video follows the zen warrior path of the main character, D a queer cyberpunk goddess, who wanders across the land following the death of her estranged father, whom we will call The Wizard. D is on a spiritual journey on a search to unravel the layers of patriarchal power systems embedded in the fabric of her life. Struggling to come to grips with the loss of her ego, she completes walking meditation upon the built environment. Using the landscape as her friendly companion, D reflects on the history of each location and her place within.

The Wizarda live performance piece incorporating computer generated audio and video visuals

Wanderlust, a short experimental documentary centered around a woman who travels alone. As she travels, she contemplates notions of female hysteria, agriculture, and the dawning of the New Age.

Total screening time: approx 55 minutes
