PERFORMANCE: The Art of Being a Spectator

presented at Tricklock Performance Laboratory

Tricklock Company and 516 ARTS are pleased to co-present The Art of Being a Spectator, a new play by Loren Kahn Puppet & Object Theatre starring Isabelle Kessler, one of the founders of the Object Theatre movement in France.  Kessler says, "Is to be, not a viewer, not an observer, not a witness, but a spectator, a way to be in contact with the multitude jailed within ourselves?  Are we emotionally and mentally obese from too many snacks, offered to us in the form of entertainment or advertisements?  Is being a spectator a tool for dealing with our emotions, one of the most important tasks in life?  To feel is in question."

The performance includes art objects by Corinne Forget, Susan Wing, Francesca Sorgato, Suzanne Sbarge, Carol Hoy, Loren Kahn, Rein Jansma, Philippe Lefebvre, Jacques Templeraud, Tom Dixon, Ran Ortner, Gaspard Le Dem, as well as a kimono and a calendar.  40 minutes + conversation.

Tickets: $10 available in advance or at the door from Tricklock Company
