Becoming Light is an immersive world made for the transLAB at UCSB. As a performance, a solo dancer explores a world of light and sound on a path through memory and dream-like space. The motions of the dancer are remembered and re-encountered as ghost-like storytellers along the journey. It is the movement of the body that reveals recorded words and poetry. The shape, timing, and velocity of the body changes the way the story is told.
