About:

S.O.U.P.

This intermedia installation features dances for camera created through a collaborative process by Ana Baer (MEX/US) and Rosely Conz (BRA/US). Informed by themes such as foreignness, belongingness, and identity, S.O.U.P. merges visual art, video, and dance through evocative images and powerful metaphors. This multilayered event is presented with the participation of the Orchesis Dance Company.

S.O.U.P. was first sponsored by the Atlas Black Box Experimental Studio, Boulder CO, in September 2016.
