reach-close, a collaborative work with musician Stefan Nazarevich as the duo olive theory, exists at the intersection between live sound, embodied performance and installation art. This immersive sound experience investigates what defines an “instrument”, transforming an entire room into a sculptural piano-wire installation that both performers and audiences can interact with.

This project is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.
