What Are Our Questions?

March 22, 2018, 7pm

Justin Allen, Troizel Carr, and Bleue Liverpool participate in an evening of readings, projection mappings, and improvisational acts scripted with and without an audience. Dislocating the neatness of categories such as autonomy and sociality and positioning these as irreducibly entangled states, the evening will ask what it is that collectively formed questions can serve to rupture and preserve.
