To Touch Is To Feel
Thursday, August 7 8 pm – 1 am
Presented by FADO
A blindfolded exploration of different textures, including living creatures.
Bernice Kaye is one of the artists responsible for conceiving the Five Holes project (exploring our senses one by one). In her quiet, scrupulously honest and emotionally risky performance work, Bernice involves her audience intimately in the execution of the work, embarking on a journey into sensory research. She continues her determined journey to strip away superflouous details — all of the bells and whistles that we usually associate with performance — to get at the essence of each individual sense.
