Brooklyn, NY – Katherine Liberovskaya‘s figurative live-video improvisations draw from a vast database of diverse imagery beginning with footage from her first video camera in the 1990s—capturing details and fleeting moments of life around her—processed through feedback and dreamy effects, and activated by spontaneous abstract word/voice and sound events by Shelley Hirsch and Anthony Coleman, and extended into space by Yoshiko Chuma‘s dancing. Moving images, text, rhythms, melodies, movements, and steps emerge, merge, and collide, reshaping each other and the flow of the performance, into a 4-dimensional spur-of-the-moment audiovisual story.
