Director: Ania Catherine & Dejha Ti
Synopsis: Little Ashes ‘The Temple’ is interpreted into an intimate work of screendance merging raw performance, architecture, film, and music, defined by moments in which those elements merge into a singular feeling that is both familiar and unreal at the same time. A duet of camera and human being, the stage none other than lauded Mexican architect Javier Senosiain’s Casa Organica.
Bio: Ania Catherine and Dejha Ti are an award-winning LA-based experiential artist duo whose practice merges environments, technology, and performance art.

Their expertise collide—Ti’s extensive background in immersive art and human-computer interaction, and Catherine an established choreographer, performance artist and gender scholar—in large-scale conceptual works recognizable for their signature poetic approach to technology.
