DEVOTION DEVOTION IV is a time-based 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. In collaboration with vocal artist syd island, this fourth iteration of the project allows the score to develop over various durations, intensifying shared intuition, dissolving individual authorship, inviting failure, and troubling the relationship of the body to identity, spectatorship, objectification, service, submission, and control.
