Shay Kuebler Radical System Art was founded in February 2014 and has steadily built momentum as one of the most exciting and engaging young companies in Vancouver. Radical system is based around a theory of discovering physical performances that can be highly tuned and focused while retaining instinctual and visceral truths. The company focuses on developing innovative and engaging projects through the constant redevelopment and research into its own artistic form and practice – looking to discover new methods and instigations for creation in each new project. Radical System Art looks to continually challenge their art form, making the depth of technological and choreographic exploration as relevant as its connection to the human experience.
Shay Kuebler Radical System Art looks to expand the art physical performance through an amorphous language of dance, martial arts and theatre. Telemetry looks to explore how the body is vessel of memory, history and past experiences. The project connects the science of radio systems with a blend of urban and jazz influences, to further explore how the body is a satellite that receives and relays past and present information, and that this transmission path leaves a permanent impression.
