Michal Samama - Background Materials
October 1-4, 2014 8pm | $15
Background Materials is a performance event exploring the temporal and spatial aspects of bodily experience. Its focus, paradoxically, is what could be labeled as ‘background experience’: the ‘background noise’ of our daily existence, the sensual data that ties us to the world precisely by not coming under focus. Thus, the performance, though a visual event, highlights elements of ‘background noise’, such as the artists’ breathing, and the tactility of the materials with which she interacts.
