"a world, a world" invites audiences into a hyperactive landscape saturated by shards of movement, image, and language, a tumult that stutters and sputters out, yielding to a more spacious, minimal, and meditative world. Performed for an intimate audience in an extravagantly immersive environment designed by Linda Austin and Sarah Marguier, this work is the culminating chapter in"(Un)Made", a body of work investigating the limits of personhood that began in 2015. For "a world, a world," nine performers who have been working with Austin throughout this process channel impulses generated from the cultural content that surrounds, passes through and constitutes all of us, until released to luxuriate in a space of emptiness, attention and devotion.Throughout, the lure of performance is tested, resisted, and embraced.
