Baryshnikov Arts Center Presents

Jordan Demetrius Lloyd

Trip Gloss

World Premiere commissioned by BAC
November 29-December 13, 2021

Brooklyn-based dance artist Jordan Demetrius Lloyd's Trip Gloss is an experimental documentary. The film compiles a cacophony of inner stories and imagined fantasies generated from Lloyd, five dancers, and a sound designer over the course of a weeklong residency at BAC. Trip Gloss is both a hyperdigitized and lo-fi collage of color and choreography that re-considers the translation of sensation to a two-dimensional screen.
