Description

MIT SOUNDING PRESENTS

Spider’s Canvas / Arachnodrone (US Premiere) is an immersive, synesthestic performance/installation that allows audience members to experience ‘life in the web.’ A co-creation of composer and MIT CAST Faculty Director Evan Ziporyn, composer/visual artist Christine Southworth, sound artist Ian Hattwick, spider researcher Isabelle Su, and based closely on a tent-web made by a South American cyrtophora citricola spider, the work is not simply interdisciplinary, but quite literally an interspecies collaboration.

Spider’s Canvas was inspired and commissioned by visual artist Tomas Saraceno, and was premiered in November as part of Saraceno’s acclaimed exhibition at Palais de Tokyo in Paris. To see excerpts of the Paris performances, please visit arachnodrone.com.

Spider's Canvas is a co-production of MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST), MIT Music & Theater Arts, MIT Civil & Environmental Engineering.
