Installation: Kara Rooney
Choreography: Taryn Vander Hoop

“reVerb” is an immersive performative experience that combines visual and auditory stimuli —sculptural objects, site-specific installation, spoken word, and sound—with the participatory aspects of theater and dance. Forged in collaboration between Kara Rooney and choreographer Taryn Vander Hoop, this piece extends each artist’s enquiry into the fracturing effects of memory and its impact on individual experience, emphasized through the orchestration of bodies and objects in space.
