The Light That Heals
By Carmina Escobar
|Carmina Escobar: The Light That Heals|
A woman sitting in the middle of a room filters through her body the sounds of a past communal experience in Santa Cruz. The sound triggers the intensity of a light emerging from the body of the performer, inundating the room and the senses. In this moment in time, dislocated by isolation, and at a time of painful virtuality, The Light That Heals seeks to soothe and affect the audience’s perception using the poetic sonic action of memory and the possibilities of its transfiguration to envision possible futures.
