SPILL: New

Friday, May 12 at 7pm New Created by Aretha Aoki A collaboration with digital and sound artist Ryan MacDonald, New wades through the mud and mystery of family history and explores the relationship between language, translation, silencing, and violence/war as it persists in the body.

Created by Lydia Mokdessi and Emie Hughes

Emie Hughes and Lydia Mokdessi share a vocabulary of scores, dialogues, and rituals, and attempt to develop a practice of mutual decision-making as a method of training sensitivity to desire and mutual intuition. glacier sister models a radical form of deep togetherness. Created in collaboration with performer and musician Benjamin Wagner.
