Martin E. Segal Theatre
This evening’s performances are the live component to the exhibit at the Gallery of the College of Staten Island, entitled Playthings and Performing Objects. This event explores how objects and images can be constituted to manifest themselves and enlisted toward statements and positions that resist current political culture. The evening’s performances and films feature not only resistant bodies and voices but also explore ways in which animated objects and moving images can serve to form a phalanx against encroaching rightwing forces in the United States, Brazil, and elsewhere. Included in the event is Zoe Beloff’s film Exile, a new toy theater performance of Terror as Usual by Great Small Works, and performances by Camel Collective and Natalia de Campos and Thiago Szmrecsányi.
