Maria Garcia + Nial Morgan
UNICA uses site specific recordings of private practices to create an inside-out experience. Integrated sound and choreography evolve in unison through UNICA’s intention based exercises. In holding this space, UNICA creates an acoustic installation of live sound + body manipulation in an effort to alleviate boundaries of an intrapersonal nature.
