Ferus Festival: Sonic + Womxyn Amplify 'Seasons'
A force of soulful, slow-burning R&B, singer/songwriter Sonic has a unique relationship with sound: she's partially deaf. An Artist-in-Residence at National Sawdust for the 2019-20 season, and the first-ever resident to come out of The Revolution series, Sonic kicks off her 3-act performance Seasons: An Experiential Voyage Through Sound with a special preview as part of FERUS Festival. Based on songs from her LP of the same name, as well as new, unreleased work, Seasons immerses audiences in Sonic's journey of self-discovery, acceptance, and self-love by navigating through her experiences as a queer, partially deaf womxn of color. Sonic makes use of National Sawdust's new Constellation and Spacemap systems from Meyer Sound, alongside ASL interpretation, to craft an evening that reflects how she experiences sound. Made in collaboration with her collective Womxyn Amplify, an experiential production house that creates experiences that amplify the voices of LGBTQIA womxyn and non-binary artists, Seasons aims to provide accessibility for all audiences and increase awareness around disabilities of all kinds. Incorporating live performance, monologue, movement, and more, Seasons amplifies the senses and invites audiences into Sonic's world.
