This weekend, September 21th-24th at 8pm at the Collapsible Hole you can find Science Project‘s School for Salomés, directed by Tokyo-based performance maker Yelena Gluzman. Reservations are limited, go to the website to make one.
I am excited to see this tonight. It’s not very often that someone describes their performance work as “designed to enable greater awareness of the elements which constitute specific social systems” but Gluzman has a very specific theory/philosophy of science and art stemming from her background in neuroscience that combines parts of anthropic mechanism, perdurance theory, and behaviorism/functionalism into what seems like an extraordinarily cohesive performance practice.
I’m currently working on transcripting a discussion between her and Lindsey Drury, which is pretty intense. You’ll see it soon enough. In the meantime, get ye to the ‘burg for some Salome.
