Henry Daniel's nómadas is an audio/video installation and live performance that takes inspiration from the current large-scale movements of bodies across international spaces. This complex, ongoing pattern of movement can be seen as a type of chaotic transnational choreography.
nómadas comes out of Daniel's larger, long term Contemporary Nomads research project, which explores the "deep fragmentation which exists between communities within as well as outside national borders, between nationalized and personalized bodies, and between social and political institutions and the ordinary people they were meant to serve."
The production features the collaborative work of guest artists Adam Basanta (Music), Sammy and Shanghan Chien (Media Design), and Alan Sorey (Set Design).
nómadas is supported by the Iris Garland Visiting Choreographer Fund and the KRT Wasitodipuro Fellowship Fund.
