ARCOS presents In the Ether
ARCOS presents In the Ether, a hybrid online and in-person performance exposing the fluidity of their existence across virtual and real spaces.
Performers include Celeste Camfield, Bonnie Cox, Ginnifer Joe, Taryn Lavery, Mackenzie Lawrence, Rachel Meador, Rachel Nayer, Oddalys Salcido and Erica Saucedo. Designers include Leon Cai, Iman Corbani, Georgina Garza, Laura Gonzales, Emily Novack, Ben Randall and Kendra Wiley.
ARCOS began the Ether series over five years ago, shortly after the livestreaming video feature appeared on major social media platforms. On July 6, 2016, Philando Castile’s murder by police officer Jeronimo Yanez livestreamed to Facebook, as Castile’s girlfriend Diamond Reynolds broadcast from her phone while her four-year-old daughter watched from the backseat. The immediate access to this horrific act exposed urgent ethical territory for ARCOS co-directors Erica Gionfriddo and Eliot Gray Fisher.
