Utilizing stop-motion animation, Discrete Points presents a figure traversing layered realities formed of memory. We create our inner land as an idealized homespace with images and places remembered, as we seek to ‘return’ to where we once were.

ANTHROCOLLAGIK SOUND + MOVEMENT CO.
Anthrocollagik Sound + Movement Co. forges an amalgam of body performance, video, sound, and installation. Co-directors Amy Ling Huynh and Christina Leyva bring the essence of their music/visual art and movement practices into a collaborative transcendence of their forms.
Fascinated by biology and cartography, Anthrocollagik Co. communicates a vast, yet intimate experience of place. They contemplate the microcosms of California, asking, “Do we inhabit spaces, or do spaces inhabit us?” Leyva shape-shifts through traditional and modern movement, while Huynh combines visual and musical elements in live performance and video. At the edge of the urban and the natural, Anthrocollagik Co. unifies the moving body with its sound and color, narrating a single moment, time and place, that approaches, then has already passed.
