Fragility: An Exploration of Polyrhythms (Part One)

NEW YORK, June 8, 2018 — Fragility: An Exploration of Polyrhythms is drummer and composer Susie Ibarra's immersive performance and percussion piece. Using polyrhythms as a model for human interdependence, Ibarra captures the concept of fragility through music, exploring the subtle intersections that affect relationships. Conceived of by Ibarra, the performance featured dancer and choreographer Souleymane Badolo and members of the DreamTime Ensemble: Claudia Acuña, vocals; Jennifer Choi, violin; Yves Dharamraj, cello; Yuka C. Honda, electronics; Susie Ibarra, drumset and percussion; and Jake Landau, guitar and keyboard. (8 min., 57 sec.)

Commissioned and produced by Asia Society as part of Creative Common Ground, an initiative that expands contemporary performance practice by commissioning, producing, and presenting artists who explore beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries. The initiative is supported by a generous grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Fragility: An Exploration of Polyrhythms has been developed in partnership with Pioneer Works with additional support from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant during the residency phase.
