Queer Girl Theatre Project presents Remember Me. Calypso presents “i capture dot show slash reality” examining the digital image and our most intimate understandings.
Calypso presents a new multi-media presentation entitled “i capture dot show slash reality” Calypso draws upon her own experiences of being alive to dance and clown from the live stage into the projected video screen. Through a comedic and touching cycle of life, venture with Calypso as she is born, goes in search of herself, gets caught in her own traps, becomes the grandmother, and bows down to her own inevitable and infinite death. Finding ourselves in the dawn of the information age, this show calls attention to our culture’s stories of time and identity, and how the proliferation of the digital image is transforming our most intimate understanding of who we are. Calypso is a multimedia performance artist and clown from San Francisco. Passionate about the experience of being alive and the mystery of this phenomenon, Calypso dissects and plays with cultural stories, personal nuances, technology and how to access power through riveting and ridiculous displays of clown dance video theater. Calypso has toured nationally clowning and fire dancing with grassroots circuses by bicycle and bio-diesel bus. She currently performs clowning and magic shows for children, collaborates with local dream weavers and circus professionals, face paints at corporate teambuilding events and is developing a full length solo show about cycles of time based on her own life experiences.
