The Mysterious Others
Performance with Marya Sea Kaminski
Sunday, October 25, 2015
2:00 – 3:30 pm
First they came to the office, snickering and spreading vicious lies. Then they started driving through his neighborhood at night, slowing down in sinister fashion and speeding off before he could catch a good look. Finally, they climbed inside the walls of his house and under the surface of his mind, scratching on the other side of sense.
In this multi-media performance, Kaminski returns to the solo form, and uses text, video and nostalgia to conjure and then cast out the demons of her brother's mental illness. After the performance, audience members will be invited to stay for a shared hour of quiet.
