0th (pronounced zeroth) is an all female group who use audio, multimedia art and technology to explore the occupied world. The groups name is inspired by the idea that while 0 often means null, nil or nothing, it also represents something. How can nothing represent something? At Southern Exposure, 0th presents BLOW UP UNIVERSE, a new performance piece exploring what may have come before the Big Bang. It may well have been total nothingness, the inside of a black hole, the 0 before the 1. Or it could have been an elaborate scenario with dancing giants stamping sonic boom bolides, lama heads blowing up balloon universes, and many, many floating pigtails using matter to paint brush in dark stars, ring nebulas, and large hadron colliders. 0th uses music, technology, string art, dance, percussion and robots to formulate a way back into the void of nonexistence.
This performance will broadcast simultaneously with a 0th performance happening at Live with Animals in Brooklyn, New York, and will be streaming live online.
