Sonic and Womxyn Amplify

Seasons: An Experiential Voyage Through Sound

7pm doors • 8pm show


Seasons: An Experiential Voyage Through Sound, a multimedia concert from R&B singer/songwriter and Sonic, reflects her unique relationship with sound: she’s partially deaf. The performance makes innovative use of National Sawdust’s new Constellation and Spacemap audio systems from Meyer Sound to draw audiences into Sonic’s singular aural world. Based on songs from her LP of the same name, and made in collaboration with her collective Womxyn Amplify, Seasons immerses audiences in Sonic’s journey of self-discovery, acceptance, and self-love by navigating her experiences as a queer, partially deaf womxn of color.

This second work-in-progress showing of Seasons, a new piece developed as part of Sonic’s residency at National Sawdust, dives into her adolescence. Featuring an expanded cast of performers and more extensive production design, the performance guides the audience through Sonic’s story with narration by members of Womxyn Amplify.

Come early to experience an interactive installation that asks audience members to engage with “invisible differences.” Captions are provided throughout the performance.
