K BODY AND MIND
In a deregulated zone in the Pacific, amidst a flurry of technological and genetic innovation, a new dream for humanity’s survival is born: BODY-SHARE. A security agent oversees the safe integration of participant minds and company bodies—while the bugs get worked out.
Envisioned as a wild 90’s anime epic squeezed into a minimalist theatrical container, this work-in-development is an interdisciplinary duet for two powerhouse women of colour, examining themes of hybrid identity, genetic memory, and start-up culture.
K BODY AND MIND is the second project to be commissioned for T/R’s COLLIDER Residency, a program built around PushOFF to foster artistic practice among Vancouver performance-makers. Future development is scheduled throughout 2019 and 2020.
