INCHOATE BUZZ (2022)
a film by Leah Walker
conceived and commissioned by Fernanda Muñoz-Newsome
Leah Walkers film expands on artist and choreographer Fernanda Muñoz-Newsome’s performance project INCHOATE BUZZ. The film is both documentation and extension of the live event, performed in summer 2022 at the London Contemporary Music Festival and features live works from Fernanda Muñoz-Newsome, SERAFINE1369, Mica Levi, Isabel Rosa Muñoz-Newsome, Nkisi and Eve Stainton.
INCHOATE BUZZ project merges Muñoz-Newsome’s practices of performance, collaboration and curation. Core collaborators are sound designer/ new media artist Josh Anio Grigg, artist and researcher India Harvey and light designer Charlie Hope, who create an immersive environment for the live work.
Fernanda Muñoz-Newsome’s practices involve dancing, choreography, collaboration, curation, facilitation and research. She creates work that shifts perspectives, crafting spaces of potential where tuning perception, action and voice can resituate experience within our environments, stimulating kinaesthetic response, as well as innate gut, bodily and imaginative intelligence. Embracing different types of experiencing/ neurodivergence within her projects challenges traditional performance set-ups.
