A multimedia (re)telling of imaginings and recollections in a span of a few minutes. Two young Filipino migrant women. Two ports and destinations yet a single longing for home. As their origins are unraveled and dislocations made apparent, their decision to leave is presented as not uncomplicated and their future temporal journeys and meanderings to find home foreshadowed.
“dys-tort” is a video and performance poetry piece on Filipino fantasies of home. This exploration is original content created specifically for the 120 foot long video wall at Frank Gehry’s InterActiveCorp building in Chelsea. This piece was to explore the length and distance between two points, connected by the visual imaginings of “home.”
