becoming is an immersive projection that explores reincarnation as a transformative process. Utilizing five projectors on three walls, this piece submerges the audience into the limbo of creation.

Rehearsal for Judgement Day - January 31st, 2019
The initial inspiration of becoming came from a previous collaboration project with choreographer Asante Parker on her piece Judgement Day. For the first part of Judgement Day, I created abstract silhouettes of the dancers that integrated into the motion of the dance itself. I decided to further expand on this short project, taking inspiration from the dancers’ movement and reconstructing a different narrative from the first song of their dance.
Performed at WACSMASH 2019 on February 1 & 2, 2019 @ UCLA Glorya Kaufman Hall
Special thanks to Asante Parker, the dancers, Arsenio, Mark, Kian, and of course, Hirad Sab and all the wonderful people in DMA 24 that supported me on this journey.
