"LOOP," an Interdisciplinary Performance by Laurel Snyder in Collaboration with Adam Schatz and Emma Judkins
Laurel Snyder, Adam Schatz and Emma Judkins
LOOP is a new experiment in collaboration across artistic mediums and sensibilities. It posits performance as an ever-evolving, collaborative means for growth, change, and learning that involves both the audience and performers in its process.
Creators Laurel Snyder, Emma Judkins and Adam Schatz are uncovering new ways of working, using everything from synths, samplers, saxophone, dance and the acoustic voice. They are devising various, cyclical physical and musical scores that invite both known and unknown material to be unearthed live. Each performance is special and unique and you are invited to be a part of it!
