MAGNETIC NORTH
OCTOBER: 12 18 19 20 25 26 27



This collection of works displays a variety of approaches to identity, self, and cultural translation. Performance, in many guises--the acting of character, confessional self-revelation, historical reenactment, gestural or conceptual activities--is foregrounded, and the process of generating an often mutable self is made visible as an ongoing and performative undertaking. Program length 86 minutes.
