Leimay: Becoming

Leimay: Ximena Garnica + Shige Moriya presented the U.S. premiere of their latest collaborative dance-video project in Carnegie Mellon’s Kresge Theater during the 2011 wats:ON? Festival.

Becoming meditates on the continuous cycles of life and death, the modern human search for identity and the struggle to become someone. Contrasting wild physicality with meditative stillness, Leimay’s performance works synthesize dance, live manipulated video and original live music. Collaborators include an international group of artists from the U.S., Colombia, Japan and the Czech republic, including composer roland Toledo and dancers Denisa Musilova, Miyu Leilani and Masanori Asahara.
