Performance by Nat & Veronica of Skin Horse Theater
Hosted by PARSE & niños malos
Performance December 5 & 6, 6pm, 7pm, 8pm
"Readymade: a Dadaist visual art concept where common household objects were recontextualized as Art. Theater: a place of enactment of events or action
In this performance experiement Nat and Veronica of Skin Horse Theater attempt to frame everyday, unrehearsed events as short places of theater and explore the strange, voyeuristic pleasure humans derive from watching other humans. We do not know what will happen. You do not know what will happen. Each "performance" will be different. It's Dada, baby."
