this house is not a home: fill it with air (call it self care) [performance 1]
this house is not a home: there’s a leak in this house [performance 2]
And I asked myself, “what is a performance score that I could inhabit towards joy?”
And I came up empty and laughed a bitter laugh.
I had nothing.
A show excavating nothing, just hot air.
this house is not a home sets multidisciplinary artist Nile Harris’ improvised physical score inside of a sound-responsive bounce castle. Interweaving sonic feedback as a malleable material, the unique vocal utterances of the cast create a biometrically unique musical composition that cannot be repeated. Made in collaboration with performer Malcolm-x Betts and sound designers slowdanger.
This performance is dedicated to Trevor Bazile
(March 27, 1996 - October 28, 2021).
