Across disciplines and modes, Nile Harris and Andrew Smyth study how cultural and linguistic histories move through bodies, and how bodies move through those histories, both on the page and in time, in words and in steps and in sounds. “I am in the practice of embodied experimentation and envision a world that values experimentation as a means to radically re-imagine the world that we live in,” Harris explains. Both Harris and Smyth reach towards another world, another commons, another living experiment.
This event will begin with a reception at 7. Performances and remarks will begin at 8.
Featuring guest introductions by Malcolm-x Betts and Myung Mi Kim
