DISCO RIOT presents Ex Nihilo

  • Centro Cultural de la Raza 2004 Park Boulevard San Diego, CA, 92101 United States (map)

"In the beginning desire - the first seed of the mind - arose in That Seer-poets searching in their heart with wisdom found the bond of existence in nonexistence." -Rig Veda 10:129

Ex Nihilo, Latin for “out of nothing” is DISCO RIOT’s first show: something coming from nothing. In this work we meditate on the creative spark that must underlie all beginnings in order to bring them to fruition, and the humbling awe of never truly knowing where it comes from. Choreography by Zaquia Mahler Salinas in collaboration with dancers Lauren Christie, Desiree Cuizon, and Jaime Nixon. Live, original sound by Jonny Tarr; accompanied by audio recordings of Alan Watts.
