"It was in the gym and nothing was particularly different except a marimba band had been hired to play. A disco ball hung from the ceiling. Our books were wrapped in brown paper bags and stashed in our lockers. Nobody took it seriously and I secretly longed for late 90’s pop songs."
Holobio is an intra-acting ecosystem that relies on all that are involved, responsive to sunlight, air, and movement. Occurring over the duration of an evening, it is the result of a collaboration between Ezra Fieremans, Nikima Jagudajev and Asad Raza. Comprised of people, piano chords, choreographed slow dances, fire and a swimming pool, Holobio is an invitation to become part of an entangled ecology.
"Regardless of the music we managed to grind on one another and Sister Mary Ann told us to ‘leave room for Jesus’. We detached and decided to dry hump the wall instead.”
In collaboration with Margaret Garett, Beatrix Huberty, and Amalia Wiatr Lewis.
