the body of pain in a post-antibiotic era

May 31 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$5 – $25

the body of pain in a post-antibiotic era investigates the complexities of human relationship within this American political landscape and the dynamics that generate systems of harm perpetuating oppression and destruction of the planet.

Bringing together a multi-talented ensemble of dancers, actors, and musicians – the body of pain is a new multimedia performance created and directed by Skye Hughes.

Looking through the chaos of identity politics, information war, and the climate crisis, the production deconstructs rhetoric operating within the American information war and the weaponization of identity politics fueling inequality, violence, and exploitation. It’s an exploration of the pain of this American moment, the parallel devastation of our individual and collective experience and the global repercussions.

Going from the micro to the macro, the somatic to the metaphysical – the individual body, the political body, the body of our planet – it imagines the end of humanity in images.

A dancer dances with a projector. A theremin is played. There’s a singalong.
