Ahya Simone // Iridescence

By The Philadelphia Thing (other events)

2 Dates Through Jun 18, 2022

IRIDESCENCE is a live-scored abstract short film around revealing one’s self and autonomy of storytelling. Using my body as a main visual subject, I explore my universe of interests – visually and sonically. I am always fascinated with time, clocks, and astrological natal chart geometry as symbols of measurement of existence. This work is a visual representation and celebration of my body in the midst of dysphoria, the beauty of time in cycles (astrology).


This production is part of TRADE SCHOOL: PHL+Detroit, a festival and exchange that celebrates the work of Philadelphia and Detroit performing artists, June 16-25, 2022.
