Work-in-progress
Composer and multimedia artist Linda Bouchard is developing “Identity Theft” in collaboration with dancer and choreographer Aisan Hoss, versatile instrumentalist Kyle Bruckmann and technical support by composer/cameraman/actor David Coll.

The words “identity theft” conjures the rational fear of our online identities being stolen. As the work developed “identity theft” appeared to be about the fragility of our personal and communal connection to the global village and the tremendous pressure our inner topography is under in the current moment. “Identity Theft” explores the nuanced, fluid and threatened connection we have to our own identity and sense of belonging in a rapidly changing world. With dance, live music, electronics, live video and everyday objects, this new work explores the virtual and literal meaning of identity theft.
