a canary torsi
a canary torsi creates site-adaptable performance projects. Formed in 2009 by Brooklyn choreographer Yanira Castro, a canary torsi invites audiences into work that is anchored in live performance and extends into other media and online platforms. Ranging from formal movement explorations and immersive environments to interactive video installations and online archives, a canary torsi explores the relationship between audience and event, developing scenarios where the audience’s presence dramatically impacts the work.
“Forget the safety of distance; this is the palpable sensation of art up-close and personal.”
