Participatory Performance-Installation;
Participants, 3 performers, 4-channel sound, 2-channel video, paper instructions, candle, mask, incense, putty, circular carpet, large wooden rectangular boxes, dimensions variable.



Tomorrow’s Islands is an performance-installation about movement, connection, and attention. Using land reclamation as a subject, the work treats the migration and compaction of sand as a metaphor for the displacement and reconstitution of community, reflecting on the potential and challenges of communality amidst congregation.

How, if at all, does physical proximity translate into emotional connection? How does a place become a home? When belonging and togetherness is tough, what possibilities for solitude remain?
