The Brick presents
DEVOTION DEVOTION
by Lydia Mokdessi and Jason Bartell
November 6 4-8pm

DEVOTION DEVOTION III is a durational performance for dance, guitar, and voice. Initiated by dancer Lydia Mokdessi and musician Jason Bartell in 2017, the duo have developed shared practices of sonic and physical droning, employing opulent loops and cinematic imagery to create a pleasurable meditative experience within a harsh audiovisual environment. Accompanied by vocalist Syd Island, this third iteration of the project allows the score to develop over four hours, intensifying shared intuition, dissolving individual authorship, inviting failure, and troubling the relationship of the body to identity, spectatorship, objectification, service, submission, and control.
