Animals of Distinction, Fly Pan Am & United Visual Artists “Frontera” // Jasmine Guffond & Ilan Katin


Part of "CTM 2020 – Liminal"


180 min.

In an era of aggressive nationalism and corporate mass surveillance, the human body has never been rendered so visible. Subjected to increasingly invasive forms of industrial-scale oversight and processing, bodies are perpetually monitored, defined, and captured. In “Frontera,” by Animals of Distinction with a choreography by Dana Gingras, nine dancers navigate spaces of inclusion and exclusion—their bodies mapped in high resolution, their destinies unresolved. Featuring light-based scenography by United Visual Artists (UVA), live music by Fly Pan Am, and field recordings by Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s Dave Bryant, “Frontera” asks what space remains for the unruly, ungovernable body.
