Elizabeth Cohen: Flesh +1
Performance: Thursday April 13, 8:30 pm
This performance explores the ways in which we live on a continuum with the world around us, with the animals and objects in our world. By extending the surface of the body so that we experience our body as “more than”, this work creates a body that transgresses its accepted limits at the same time that it participates in a tradition of medieval carnival.
