THINGS THAT BREAK is a multidisciplinary concert experience in the realms of new music, stop-motion animation, storytelling, visual art, and theatrical performances centered around the theme of “breaking”. Jessi Harvey, composer; collaborated with Becky Joy Aitken, animator; Sonya Harris, storyteller and photographer; and Aimee Hong, performer. This group of Seattle-based female artists combined their abilities to create this unique presentation of world premieres with an intent to find the connections and unity between people; in this case, the connection of common fragmentation. These connections, in today’s continually more polarized society, are important to find to start a dialogue between opposing viewpoints and a re-opening for common ground.
