“That’s a HANDFUL!” by Alyza DelPan-Monley
October 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Join zaza on a fact-finding adventure, diving into and exploring HANDS: handshakes, hand signals, pinky promises, palm reading, shadow puppets, finger prints, nerve sensation, touch and connection. Using their two hands and ten fingers, as well as other props, metaphors and perhaps a touch of whimsy with a dash of the imagination, we will put our finger on the pulse of these distal appendages, their sensitivity and their capabilities. How and why do we use our hands and what are all the amazing things we can do with them?
Equal parts Radiolab meets the Magic School Bus meets the Big Comfy Couch, this show invites you to cozy up, feel some feelings and learn as many fun finger factoids and (hand)necdotes that we can cram into one show.
I give it two thumbs up! Pinky promise!
This presentation is part of Velocity’s program the Curating Artist in Residency 2022-23, which was made possible with funding from the Cultural District Economic Recovery Fund initiated by Seattle Office of Arts + Culture.
