Shana Moulton presents a live activation of Meta/Physical Therapy (2023–24), created in collaboration with composer Nick Hallett. Follow Moulton’s performance persona, Cynthia, on her quest for wellness and knowledge as she navigates an ecstatic environment in which things are not what they seem. The performance will take the form of a medical ritual, in which a team of care providers—performed by musicians Nava Dunkelman, Shayna Dunkelman, Raquel Acevedo Klein, Anaïs Maviel, and Nick Hallett—guides Cynthia through a series of strengthening exercises and lessons in self-acceptance. In a final act of transformation, she achieves synchrony with the mysterious workings of the universe.
Matinee performances, on April 7 and April 14, are free with Museum admission. Capacity for all performances is limited and advance registration is required. Tickets for all performances will be made available one month prior to the first performance.
To accommodate the performances, the exhibition Shana Moulton: Meta/Physical Therapy will be closed all day on April 7 and 14. The exhibition will also close at 2:00 p.m. on April 11 and at 5:00 p.m. on April 5, 6, and 12.
