IS: SI    NG

Oct. 19th, 2017 at 7:30pm, Touch Tour at 6:30pm
Run Time: 45mins with a 30 minute post-show discussion.

Experimenting with abstract musical scores Matt Bodett and Christophe Priessing will explore the complex relationships within schizophrenia. This performance battles socially understood models of mental illness and reveals the human within. As a part of the Access Project at Victory Gardens and one part of “TWELVE: a series of performative koans” the conversation that this performance offers extends beyond the stage, beyond the performers, and instead permeates the conditions in which we comprehend others with mental illnesses as well as our own shortcomings. Diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder thirteen years ago, Matt Bodett’s performance series addresses his diagnosis, the symptomology, the difficulties, and the healing process. Following the performance there will be a short panel discussion with Matt Bodett, Christophe Priessing, and Arlene Malinowski, moderated by Carrie Sandahl. This performance is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, 3Arts, and Bodies of Work.
