This ember state

This ember state


a work of vocal performance

by Samita Sinha in collaboration with Dean Moss & Cenk Ergun

commissioned and produced by Asia Society as part of the Creative Common Ground Initiative


This ember state deconstructs Indian classical music through the pussy to reconstruct the myth of the self-immolating Hindu goddess Sati.

The work generates an experience of void and presence through voice, flesh, and sound, sculpting and dissolving forms at the physical and psychic border between inside and outside space.

This ember state will premiere at Asia Society’s Aron Gallery in New York City in April 2018.
