Program: Sunday, May 5th, 2 – 4 PM
Sauna! is a springtime reading, screening, and live sauna that will spray, spout, and splay out concepts of multiplicity. Featured are written works and works for the screen that destabilize the solitary subject by means of an “I” gone rogue, works in which the body is shifted slightly and the individual’s life is temporarily abandoned in order to make play on a different plane. The artists actively and ambiently think through “persona” in their approach to language, action, or production in order to examine the performance produced in and by everyday behaviors. Sauna! attempts to get at the sensation of watching a person watch another person who is trying not to perform, bodies separating from themselves, the slowing of time and language, and cycles.
The sauna will be open and running alongside films from the program on the following dates:
Sunday, May 12th, 1 – 5 PM
Saturday, May 18th, 1 – 3 PM
