BODIES AT THE CENTER
Saturday, November 7, 2015 @ 5:30 pm
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, CHF commissioned an original performance with two artists who are at the heart of the conversation – Gregg Bordowitz and Marissa Perel. Bordowitz is a seminal artist known for exploring identity – in video and film, including his documentary about his identity as a gay man living with AIDS (Fast Trip, Long Drop). For artist Marissa Perel, the limitations of her body are infinite sources of inspiration for performance and poetry. Together, these two collaborate on the ways in which disability culture is allied with feminist and gay rights, exploring what can be accomplished when shared vulnerabilities become a tool for revolution.
