Osman Khan: [drohn] at MOCAD


Osman Khan: [drohn] at MOCAD

[drohn] is a multi-channel video and multi-performer/instrumentalist performance which centers on a play off of multiple readings on the word drone.” The performance juxtaposes imagery mixed and edited from military, industrial, and hobbyist drone footage as well as commissioned and live drone video feeds. The piece is choreographed by artist and Stamps Associate Professor Osman Khan with a soundscape performed live by an ensemble led by composer and multi-instrumentalist James Cornish. The scenography was designed by Osman Khan and architectural designer Peter Halquist.
