YOKO ONO'S CUT PIECE

FREE




Performance artist Lisa D'Amour will perform one of Yoko Ono's most famous and controversial pieces, in which audience members are invited to cut away pieces of her clothing with a pair of scissors. A daring and compelling work, Cut Piece has been called "an aesthetic commentary on the complicit relationship between individuals and the social body as a whole in its collective behavior." D'Amour, a core member of the Playwright's Center in Minneapolis, is a nationally recognized playwright and multidisciplinary performance artist whose work has earned her Jerome and McKnight fellowships.
