Boing! is an exploration of bouncing and swirling, created as a fusion of music, dance, performance, and installation.

A kinesthetically playful and aurally rich experience, Boing! delivers child-like fun with sophisticated composition.

This work features an ensemble of crafty performers moving and sounding within thousands of ping-pong balls and an array of cooking pots, forming a stunning visual and sonic experience with “a satisfying cacophony of pings and pops. . . and delicious silence”, in the words of Beau Hancock from ThINKingDANCE.

Designed by Flandrew Fleisenberg and Loren Groenendaal. Performed by Sean Thomas Boyt, Fleisenberg, Groenendaal, Jenny Sawyer, Kelly Turner, and Elizabeth Weinstein.

By Kinan Faham

the Silent Camera is Kinan Faham's photography moniker. Kinan is a software guy with interests in visual and sonic arts. Through photography and video, he captures the extraordinary in the ordinary. Kinan was born in the oldest continually inhabited city in the world and moved to the states for graduate school. For him, art is a hobby that also forms an essential, inseparable part of his being.. The inspiration for the Silent Camera name came from contemporary composers Arvo Part and John Luther Adams whose compositions defy complex structures in favor of meditative voices and can be linked to space/visual stimuli.
