Cobalt

Cobalt is Odd Meridian’s commission of dance artist Shion Skye Carter and composer Jo Hirabayashi to collaboratively create a work.

Through its lush regality, Cobalt reflects the vibrant pigmented abundance that I strive to feel in my body, a body that I constantly scrutinize and critique; a body that doesn’t always feel like home. Moving through time from my childhood to the future, I oscillate between these portraits of self, attempting to succeed in the impossible task of existing at multiple ages, multiple identities, all at one moment. If I cover up myself in blue, perhaps I won’t be so blue anymore?" – Shion Skye Carter
