LEIMAY presents Extinction Rituals - Video Installation
The installation will run for 40 minutes and restart at the top of each hour.
Pay What You Can $0-$25
Conceived and directed by Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist duo, and Chelsea Factory Resident Artist duo Ximena Garnica & Shige Moriya of LEIMAY, Extinction Rituals is inspired by acts of remembrance celebrating the life and loss of animals, plants and environments from the places they call home—Japan, Colombia, and NY. Extinction Rituals is an ever-evolving project, with various manifestations incorporating movement, song, spoken word, music, and visual storytelling to create short rituals honoring extinct species. This December at Chelsea Factory, Extinction Rituals - Video Installation will offer a meditative exploration of enigmatic landscapes, ranging from Colombia's Gorgona Island to Japan's frozen Akan Lake. It will also feature communities from the Colombian Pacific coast and LEIMAY dancers in visual poems, as offerings to those species who have ceased to exist.
Please note: floor pillows and seats will be available to sit and experience the installation. To access the seating area, audiences will be asked to take off their shoes, with the option to wear provided booties.
The installation will be accompanied by 2 movement-based workshops on Saturday, December 9 and Sunday, December 10 at 10:00am.
