The multidisciplinary duo Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya with the LEIMAY Ensemble return to BAM Fisher with FRANTIC BEAUTY, the newest evening-length work representing the mid-point in their BECOMING pentalogy. The series deals with matter’s constant state of becoming through growth and decay, beginnings and endings. Combining the LEIMAY Ensemble’s signature physicality, layered over vivid visual landscapes, FRANTIC BEAUTY engulfs audiences in a minimalistic yet immersive environment juxtaposing trembling and harmonious images to reflect on society’s pursuit of and relationship to beauty. This world premiere sets visceral vocalizations and scattered soliloquies against the contrasting movements of Emmy-winning composer, Jeff Beal’s (House of Cards), original score.
