CONTACT is a performance about bodies coming together and becoming undone through sound, movement, touch, and play.
In CONTACT bodies encounter other bodies, whether human-animal or material, whether fabric or image or nature’s detritus.
CONTACT occurs through the unexpected, which brings risk and joy.
CONTACT is about being present and about using bodies as a vehicle to articulate the unique environment of the moment.
Through CONTACT, we — SOMA 2020, aka Magdalena Edwards & Sohani Holland & our special guests — invite stillness and presence and the unknown.
CONTACT happens before the eyes of our audience and performers, a shared experience of consciousness through layers of containment, contrast, conflict, and connection.
Magdalena Edwards is a writer, actor, and translator obsessed with hybridity, border-crossings, and the creative process in all its public intimacies. Sohani Holland is a Los Angeles-based artist and creative director who uses performance and textiles as mediums for documenting and storytelling. Magdalena & Sohani are SOMA 2020.
