TOLVA / Sam Congdon
Sept 15 - 23 2016
AUX Performance Space at Vox Populi GalleryMap
The world has gone rigid. Gender roles are strictly enforced by a ruthless government. There is a queer rage bubbling up through one cyborg’s circuitry, but can a single robot bring it all down? A queer sci-fi odyssey of self-discovery and rebellion blending solo performance, experimental electronic music, and video.
Conceived, written, created, and performed by TOLVA / Sam Congdon.
Dramaturgy: J.D. Stokely
Music: Stephen Piccarella

TOLVA: A space princess who travels the universe in an orb of vibrating color in search of the weird, the queer, and the magical.
TOLVA is the alter ego of… SAM CONGDON: A curator and multimedia artist. He is a founding member of SUPER|object, a curatorial collective dedicated to creating space for young and emerging Philadelphia artists. His artistic work uses live performance, experimental electronic music, video, and new media to explore the intersections of sex, gender, and technology.
