Human Comma Being – The Class
Dafna Maimon's recent video and performance hybrid project Human Comma Being is concerned with identity constructions that challenge definitions of the self, the other and the body, acknowledging our living or technological doppelgangers and missing limbs. During the evening the audience can join or observe the latest development of the project The Class where the movement technique Extended I Exercise will be introduced.
Extended I Exercise will be introduced by Michael Norton.
