We are developing a community-based multimedia troupe of creatives to promote art, music, sculpture, and film.
La Soupe Dangereuse is an ambient sound design and post-rock musical ensemble that incorporates a team of visual artists to choreograph multimedia narratives into their live performances. Elements of video, installation art, performance, kinetic sculpture, interactive props distributed to the crowd, and mostly all made from recycled materials, create sublime art happenings that both challenge and explore notions of materialism, intertextuality, craftsmanship, and meaning.
Until now, this preoccupation with simple materials such as cardboard, bicycles, fishing line, and light has been one of necessity since we essentially work from a shoe string budget, but the challenge has been rewarding as our sense of presentation is truly put to the test and the simplicity of our materials draws attention to both the artistry and our nature vs. machine brand of iconography.
Now is the time to take our vision to the next level of interactive. We want to book shows in various contemporary art venues as well as write for grants to do public art installations featuring collaborative interactive happenings captured on Super HD video and sold, and in some cases given, back to the event participate as an extension of their interactive experience during our art happening. To do all this, we need to make a high quality video to submit in our proposals for grants, applications for artist residencies, and various other booking opportunities or call for entries.
While we openly celebrate the fact that using recycled materials presents an element of content in itself, we cannot make literally everything out of found objects, so help us out by pitching in on some lighting for the camera crew and a few other things we cannot get for free such as textiles, fishing line, spray paint, clear boxing tape, and more.
