BUOY: A FLOATING OBJECT OF DEFINED SHAPE AND COLOR WHICH IS ANCHORED AT A GIVEN POSITION AND SERVES AS AN AID TO NAVIGATION

Bailey Nolan and Viva Soudan are movement artists based in Brooklyn:

Living as womyn, constantly costumed, we are interested in indulging in the extremes of expectations.  On our path to freedom, creating waves of controversy, we, Bailey Nolan and Viva Soudan, are twinning to extract the individual from uniformity.  We deliver a live experience of an idealistic reality through the lens of pop culture using a choreographic landscape of dance, text, sound, and aesthetics.  Our work explores an over-saturation of emotions and circumnavigates the superficiality of validation.  Buoy demands your full presence.  Birthing joy in her wake, the radical confronting of our audience activates the exchange between viewer and performer exploding in communal climax, an orgy you’ll never forget.
