WE BEEN HERE: CATACLYSM is a performance environment that calls for the convergence of sound, the body and imminent destruction.
Organized by Jamican born artist and zine editor Yulan Grant, whose video work addresses gender, race and sexuality, the installation welcomes the apocalypse with open arms and invites the audience to revel in child-like fantasy.
Sound artist Marco Gomez aka False Witness provides a live score while the audience observes performers absorbed in play, unfeigned by the visual calamity surrounding them.
With Jahmal Blair-Golden, Alexis Thompson, Andre Singleton, Shaquilla Dillon, Darlene Turner, Sam Coffie, Williams Hassan and Karl Andre.
