About this event
“…psychologically driven […] you might want to be in a mindful state.” —The New York Times
How can we find the time to pause, memorialize, and learn from our collective histories?
Underpinned by the writings of Zuboff, Sartre, Piketty, and Virgil, ChrisMastersDance investigates overconsumption and addiction to drama, the inertia that concretizes unsustainable forms of life and work, and the inextricable link between love and loss. Constructed through rigorous generative tasks, collaborators are empowered to embrace their individual and indelible histories to forge a Mausoleum in the fire of their experiences.
