“XENAI” is a trilogy series centered around the ideas of inception, challenges, and assertion of a new identity.  It is a cross-disciplinary collaboration engaging electronic music with vocals, painting performance, and video projection.  Each performer creates and improvises individual works that intertwine to become a cohesive whole.  The video projected on the painter’s canvas is a response to the painting performance that becomes a dance in relationship to the music. 

Xenai is an ancient Greek word meaning stranger welcomed as a friend. Throughout the performance, artists and audience experience transformation from the unfamiliar to that which they embrace.
