SEEKAGO during June's South First Fridays

A big THANK YOU to everyone that came to visit the ZERO1 Garage last Friday during the SubZERO Festival. The night was a great success; over 2300 visitors came through our space to experience Eve Warnock’s SEEKAGO, a one night performance.

Presented throughout the ZERO1 Garage, SEEKAGO was series of five experimental films, directed by Eve, that were created to incite specific emotions in the viewer. The story is about a man and woman, and their relationship from death to life. The films, titled Breathing, Asphalt, The Chicken and The Coyote, FEAST, and Flight, tell an aspect of human, animal and environmental ecology.

The films were accompanied by a live performance, lead by Eve, that captured the audience in the Garage. The project involved “Speakers”, a roving sound performance using textiles; “Bagged”, a sculptural set design; and “Denizen”, a performance based on local native mythology. Accompanied by the films, Eve’s performance integrated costumes, sounds and movements, embodying the raw emotions.
