Charge is a performance exploring the hyper-personal and sensorial connective tissue of human relationships, and the blurring of the senses by means of technology. Glasser’s compositions both simulate and make use of the most personal sound source—the body— with beats and sound effects generated by her own breath and fingertips. Jonathan Turner's synchronized visual language will be replete with living and detailed organic imagery that references the natural world—images recognizable in texture and composition, yet abstract and alien in scale. Each sequence engages and augments a specific feeling and sensory organ, deepening the sacrifice of performer to audience.
