Juliana F. May
March 1-12, 2016
In Adult Documentary, five performers share their real and imagined histories. The distortion of text and body is about looking at the form of trauma or conversely the trauma of form. How does the so-called “aboutness” and shape of a word or gesture disrupt meaning and how does the form i.e., repetition, space and time rupture or repair these seemingly hermetic relationships?
