“Antonym” is an interdisciplinary piece that connects sound, movement, and projection design. There’s no antonym for nostalgia. “Antonym” (working title) attempts to construct the thing we don’t have a word for: if nostalgia is a yearning for the past, “Antonym” longs for forward motion and envisions the future as an escape from pain. Using field recordings of New York City throughout the year, the four seasons serve as a cyclical frame and context for memory. This performance will show the first completed movement I. Winter: Now, Then, and then. It features composer-pianist Sugar Vendil, violinist Hajnal Pivnik, flutist Laura Cocks, projection design by Stephanie Acosta, and costumes by fashion designer Mimi Prober.
