COALESCE—Facing These Moments—with Artists in residence Nkechi Njaka and Tauwoo

2020 is coming to an end—we can all thank our stars and garters. But for those who feel that they may have unrecognized baggage from the firestorm of our new decade, this is an event you won’t want to miss.

Artists in residence Nkechi Njaka and Tauwoo have experimented with collaboration on all fronts through out the year. Njaka, a SF based neuroscientist, meditation guide and choreographer, has been a go-to force for those in the space to reconnect with themselves. Her work has stemmed into bringing her message all around the world. When Tauwoo got involved with bringing his self-taught musicality to the front, the duo created a sound all their own.

On Dec. 12th, the pair will release this written work to the public in an intimate digital setting where the pieces will be played in a live cathedral and streamed to a small gathering over Zoom.

Facing These Moments and aims to be both a conversation and a moment to reflect on our human experience in 2020— examining solitude, grief, race-relations, isolation and uncertainty. “This choreographic work will be set to the new music of Tauwoo, songs Patterns, Orange Blossom and Painted Lines— selections from the much anticipated release of Patterns, a solo EP to be debuted on December 8th,” the team told us about the digital event they are hosting, “written during the pandemic, the EP reflects on creativity as a cathartic release, examining introspection as a form of growth. Blending drums, bass, piano and synth textures, his music can be compared to artists such as Thom Yorke, Patrick Watson and James Blake.”
