Musician-scientists search for extraterrestrial life. They play electronic and acoustic musical instruments constructed from celadon-glazed ceramics and probe scholars' rocks imbued with magical sonic and light emitting qualities, the result of a meteorite from Planet Celadon crashing into Earth.

Using video, dance, and music, this performance explores global communication as it relates to the Asian American diaspora. Current technologies, traditional Eastern music, and contemporary pop culture come together in this sci-fi inflected narrative.

Planet Celadon: Pings and Pulses, Strums and Strikes is a sequel to Genevieve Quick’s video installation and dance performance Planet Celadon: Our Receiver Is Operating, which debuted at the Asian Art Museum in 2018.

Planet Celadon: Pings and Pulses, Strums and Strikes is supported by SFAC Individual Artists Grants and the Center for Cultural Innovation.
