CHAMBER Murmur, Pulse and Potluck grew out from curiosity about the science and mysteries of the heart. By observing, measuring and collecting our hearts data, Kinetech Arts strives to illuminate information on the essence of our beings, our need for intimacy, connection, trust and our most current state as individuals and as a community. The process embodies the spirit of bridging together art with technology and human experience.
Joe Goode Annex will be transformed into a chamber with heartfelt dancing, installation, sound field and homemade wireless ECG devices, which will be connected to performers bodies, transforming their heartbeat into music. Together, we explore human connection through the rhythms and murmurs of the heart.

New rants, dance, and ritual by Keith Hennessy
Sink is a personal experiment… I’m feeling fragile and distracted and that’s partly structural. I’m responding to hate and terror, shame and paralysis, the will to survive competing against the urge to implode/explode. I’m reaching in new and old directions, dancing contemplatively, climbing dangerously, singing my guts out, asking too many questions at once: Is freedom a useful concept to motivate dancing? Can a performance be a spell of support for Syrian and Sudanese refugees or victims of fire, hurricane and government betrayal? Is there a non harmful role for the white and male artist? In our need to create contexts for healing, care, and trauma relief, how can I defend artistic provocation or abstract formalism? If the juxtaposition of these questions interests you, please come. Tickets will be cheap and no-one-will-be-turned-away-for-lack-of-money.
Sinks approach to current politics waivers between punk and contemplative, transformative and fucked, it wont be pretty most of the time. Hennessy is white, cis male, queer, immigrant/settler San Franciscan, anarchist, improviser, late 50s, and pissed all of which situate his dancing / imagination.
