[Body Barbeque Question] By Beatriz Albuquerque and David Moscovich A cookbook of American barbeque is the point of departure for this piece by artist Beatriz Albuquerque and writer David Moscovich. The art of barbeque is explored both visually and sonically, interacting with language, the body, and color. Through a realignment of social cues surrounding the culture of BBQ, this performance explores the cause and effect of gathering in the name of smoked meats.

Beatriz Albuquerque and David Moscovich: "LIBERAcTION vs BARTHELME"

+ Judith Shimer

+ Felix Morelo

+ Jenna Kline

How do performance artists use their practices as therapy for themselves, audience members, and the ills they perceive in society? How are we liberated by action in a performance sphere? Is "group therapy" an appropriate analogy for performance events? This PERFORMANCY FORUM deals with these questions via performances from 5 artists.
