A piece of performance devised by Ingrid Hu using collected text, Spanish nursery rhymes, objects, recorded and live sounds. Igleisia St Luis is a Baroque cathedral rich in ornamentation and architectural details, and above all, excellent acoustic qualities. The piece explored the visual and acoustical relationship of scenography by replacing a visual cue with a sound reference and an object, creating a textured theatrical experience where sound and imagery collided and merged.
