Collisions: Platitude New York an immersive multi-media live performance with multichannel sound and video projection. 4/28 at EMPAC A collage of personal experiences, the pinnacle of of the end of illusions, hopes and dreams.

Collisions: Platitude New York is inspired by feelings of curiosity, uneasiness and longing. This live performance in three parts submerges the audience in abstract narratives of the detriment of impulsiveness, young love and a feeling of appreciation from resignation. Tanner Pletzke (Visuals) and Ricardo Tovar Mateus (Composer/Performer) present a performance and visual work set on the platitude of the astonishing visuals of New York City, the sounds of the piano and field recordings that adapt moments of everyday life into a dreamlike experience of emotions.
