SYNTREX: PLACES // 2 – a multimedia exploration of the migration experience
Syntrex’s PLACES // 2 is a new collaboration with choreographer Magnus Westwell. The work explores the performative sense of ‘journey’, and the sensations which accompany physical migration. This show is expressed through multimedia and cross-disciplinary art forms in visionary ways, emphasising artists’ specialisms and honing their skills to form collaborative unity. PLACES // 2 showcases animation which is projected on abstract surfaces and structures; live electronic/acoustic music; and bold physical movement - the joining element of all the three art forms.
Syntrex is a London-based multimedia art collective dedicated to fusing experimental sound, moving image, choreography and technology. It was founded by creative duo Ieva Vaiti - composer and producer, and Amy Dang - visual artist, who both met at a residency for Curious Festival (part of the Barbican Centre event series).
The collective is particularly interested in creating site-specific, interactive experiences, integrating multi-channel live audiovisuals and choreographic compositions.
Although a relatively young collective, their recent work Places was received well - with sold out shows at TripSpace and Pickle Factory.
