Making its debut at URBAN-15 during the first weekend of November, Invocation is a new performance art piece by San Antonio artists Erik Bosse (writer, film-maker, and sound artist) and Laurie Dietrich (writer, photographer, and performance artist). An experiment in enhanced storytelling, Invocation consists of a pool of short (2-3 minute) stories, paired with photographs and soundscapes. At each performance, a few of those stories will be selected, in random order, to be shared. As projected images appear and disappear and the soundscape builds—evolving, generative—a story emerges. Your story might be the same as that of the artists or the person sitting next to you, but probably not. Invoking the muses to give shape to these seemingly disparate text selections, images, and sound elements means invoking as many different stories as there are people in the room.
