Line of Flight: A Conversation on Love
VITALforms is a collective comprised of Cassandra Troyan and Nicole Langille. On October 21 we float through the sky in a hot-air balloon in an act that utilizes collected texts, poems, letters and improvised speech to make an amplified conversation between two bodies. Situated in close proximity to each other in the balloon basket and at a distance with viewers positioned on the ground, this action examines the vulnerability inherent in speaking, the ways we communicate emotion, and the disconnections made between us--no matter how close or far apart from one another.
Viewers on the ground choose to continue in the conversation as they chase (or not) VITALforms, negotiating with the limitations of moving across the earth’s surface in opposition to the drifting words and unrestricted motion of the two bodies in the hot-air balloon basket, apart together.
