As part of WAVES, Florida-born, Brooklyn-based musician Helado Negro performs his blend of electronic compositions and live vocals with the dreamy movements of his “tinsel dancers” in this new choreographed production. Helado Negro (Roberto Carlos Lange) presents a new performance with costuming and movement culminating from a year of choreography workshopped with local volunteers each night of his 42 city tour. Handmade, amorphous, full-bodied cloaks of metallic silver tinsel transform his collaborators into androgynous kinetic sculptures. Tinsel is often used to create a sense of wonder and magic, yet is also recognized as a cheap and artificial material. Lange plays with this paradox, creating uncanny forms that evoke furred textures of mammalian warmth while reflecting the light and color of their surroundings.
