Wed., Sept. 21 to Sun., Sept. 25: As part of his first U.S. tour, PS 122 presents Brazilian artist Michel Groisman in two singular pieces and several interactive and intimate experiences for children and adults.
By devising wearable apparatuses and sculpting his body to test the endurance and nature of the solitary human form, Groisman’s soulful performances and investigative group experiences challenge preconceptions of performance and play on the values of confidence and exchange. Presented by Performance Space 122 & The Invisible Dog Art Center.
