In late 2016, Rebecca and Maria formed BaVa; an audiovisual duo interested in exploring both the limits and new possibilities of digitally extending their traditionally analog materials for new performance and installation possibilities. BaVa has performed audiovisual works at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, The Old Hairdressers, and at The Glad Cafe (part of the Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra MATAZZ). Bava has been awarded funding towards two shows; Women, a performance in response to women’s experiences of everyday harassment, and, Flow, a week-long installation of sound, projection and sculpture, culminating in a performance incorporating live sound, dance, painting and projections to conclude the exhibition. Rebecca and Maria are both founding members of Glasgow arts collective EAST, involved in hosting a performance at GoMA in 2017, integrating elements of live music, physical theatre, live art and neurofeedback technology; a part of ongoing research into creativity and the brain.
