Blood is here: Carmina Escobar, Roco Córdova, & Dorian Wood

April 26, 2023 8:00 pm

Blood is here is a collaborative manifestation between vocalists/multidisciplinary artists Carmina Escobar, Roco Córdova and Dorian Wood. It is an idea born from a recent collective performance within Wood’s touring 12-hour composition/installation Canto de Todes, in which the three artists considered the contexts of space, public proximity and ancestral energy to construct a web-like spatial environment consisting of their interacting voices. Each artist brings their respective trajectory to this intention, replete with mindfulness and an urgency to continue addressing hidden narratives around body autonomy and claiming/reclaiming space. As an evening length performance, Blood is here investigates the fluid histories through ritualistic practices and material experimentation, centering on the broad possibilities of vocalization. The artists will transform the space, intermittently inviting the public to witness and, by presence alone, assist in mutating the process, utilizing concepts of voice as both unifiers and isolators. During this performance, the artists will ask: Are we vessels for something finite, or conduits for a broader, more complex purpose? Blood is here is a plea for an alternative to documentation and archiving that relies on human presence, mindfulness, focus, perspective and legend to assist in the longevity of our existences.
