A Thing Attains a Life

Brice Brown; Paul J. Botelho, music; Christopher Williams, choreography

five-channel video, electro-acoustic music (5.1)

A Thing Attains A Life is an invented creation myth: over the course of the video draped figures transform cobalt blue puppets through progressive stages—Protozoan; Amoeba; Animal; Humanoid—culminating in a human form. Mirroring the progressive stages of the creation myth, the action in A Thing Attains A Life moves from predominately dance to predominately puppetry. (Brown, B.)
