Surrender to THE VOID, a surreal performance that explores the deep recesses of the mind, where reality is constantly in flux. The backyard of Trisk is reimagined as an alternate universe, and the audience is taken on a sensory journey through Murakami’s intuitive movement and Testu’s hypnotic visuals with acousmatic sounds.
As a metaphor for current times, this performance delves into how the pandemic has changed our sense of place and shifted our perception of time.

Movement: Yoko Murakami
Video & Set Design: Dan Tesene & Serena Stucke
Fabrication: Dan Tesene
Sound: Serena Stucke

Yoko Murakami is a Tokyo-born, NYC-based movement artist. Her site-specific works use the body to activate and question the status quo. She is constantly exploring ways to blur the boundaries of creative mediums through her surreal, intuitive approach and cross-disciplinary collaborations. She is an active collaborator of Testu Collective since 2018. @yokoteki

Testu Collective is an NYC-based art group founded by Dan Tesene and Serena Stucke in 2017.

Their work reimagines visual systems and sonic environments through a combination of custom-made videos, experimental sound worlds, architectural elements, and sculptural movement. @testucollective
