SFU CONTEMPORARY ARTS FACULTY SERIES: HENRY DANIEL

Henry Daniel's nómadas is an audio/video installation and live performance that takes inspiration from the current large-scale movements of bodies across international spaces. This complex, ongoing pattern of movement can be seen as a type of chaotic transnational choreography, one that speaks to what cultural theorist Stuart Hall calls a "contemporary traveling, voyaging and return as fate, as destiny […] as the prototype of the modern or postmodern New World nomad, continually moving between centre and periphery” (Hall in Rutherford, J. 234:1990).

nómadas comes out of Daniel's larger, long term CONTEMPORARY NOMADS research project, which explores the "deep fragmentation which exists between communities within as well as outside national borders, between nationalized and personalized bodies, and between social and political institutions and the ordinary people they were meant to serve."

nómadas features the collaborative work of guest artists ADAM BASANTA (Music), SAMMY AND SHANGHAN CHIEN (Media Design), and ALAN STOREY (Set Design).

Adam Basanta, who is a SCA BFA graduate (composition) and a visual artist, is the SCA Dance area's Iris Garland Visiting Artist for the fall semester; Sammy Chien, who is also a SCA BFA graduate (film,) and his brother Shanghan Chien are this semester's KRT Visiting Artists.
