Troika Ranch’s current project is an immersive performance/installation called SWARM.
SWARM breaks the boundaries between creator, performer and audience by requiring the audience to take an active, participatory role in the work’s composition.
From the moment the audience is invited to join the performers on stage, it becomes clear that the audience’s movements, both individually and collectively, are directly affecting the sonic score, the visual imagery, and the movement of the performers themselves. The audience becomes an author in SWARM. Only through coordination, conversation, and collective action will they unleash the work’s full potential.
Troika Ranch has been invited to develop SWARM during a 2 1/2 month long residency at College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts. They will present a first version of the performance in mid November, 2015.
