Invocations at NCMA

On Saturday, April 7th, ShaLeigh Dance Works was honored to create a movement installation in the East Building for the Sold Out Opening of North Carolina’s Museum of Art’s You Are Here: Light, Color, and Sound Experiences.

The movement installation, entitled “Invocations,” invited community members to move through a score of spatial patterns with light and sound emanating from their cell phones. They activated the entry way with traveling light and sound to stir the senses of the viewers in preparation for this spectacularly immersive art work. SDW Company members were placed throughout the gallery to perform a series of solos, duets and ensemble work created from scores that activated their delicate sensuality through smell, taste, touch, sight and sound.  Check out our video above, courtesy of Argyle Rebel Films.

The exhibit will continue to run through July 22nd and features immersive art installations by 15 contemporary artists, including large-scale light works, sound installations, video works, mixed-media room-size environments, and site-specific projects. The artists in this exhibition employ a diversity of media to create intriguing experiences that engage the senses, activate the imagination, and provide connections between the viewer and the work of art. This exhibition takes over an entire floor of the NCMA’s temporary exhibition galleries and also transforms the landscape in the Museum Park, creating a campus-wide presentation of contemporary experiential art.

Become part of the art. You Are Here: Light, Color, and Sound Experiences, is open through July 22, 2018.
