Experimenting

Spark follows contemporary experimental dance troupe Kunst-Stoff as they attempt to understand sightlessness in a new piece that keeps changing up to the last minute.

Then go on a drive with John Chiara, who takes photography to an interesting limit by using a large-scale camera that has to be towed to and from locations.

And go to the studio of legendary sound duo Matmos while they create a new work for the LA Museum of Natural History.

Finally, meet Ala Ebtekar, who explores identity by blending hip-hop imagery with Iranian images.
