Ecstatic Corona is a visual and sound multimedia performance using a remix of field recordings and electronic sounds, spoken words, and dance to bring Corona to you as an icon of those places created by various forces to bear more violence, more hatred and perhaps more love than other places do, a place where annihilation threatens but where survival is magnificent for all the effort and resilience it takes to survive. We have found Corona; we still are looking for Corona. We ask you to join us in seeking your CORONA too.
