Boom explores space through airwaves. Using piano, voice and electronics, Boom takes the audience on a ride into Dunietz’s abstract dream. This performance has been presented at The Abrons Arts Center in NYC, the Reykjavik Arts festival, CCA Gallery in Tel Aviv, Bezalel Academy Jerusalem, to name a few.
Premiered at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, 2014.
Video, sound and music by Maya Dunietz and Daniel Meir.
Maya Dunietz’s performance is a hypnotic journey, hard to tear you eyes or ears away. A dark classroom, an image of Dunietz standing is projected on the stage. Then the real Dunietz enters the stage, and merges into herself. At the moments before this fusion I could predict what it wouldlook like, yet it still felt magical. This magic is sustained, even amplified throughout the performance. Dunietz stands front stage like a casual diva singing, at times leading, at times following herself, moving between flight and pursuit in what seems to be half-chase half-dance.
