ITDP: Body of Knowledge
By Linda Noveroske-Tritten, Ph.D. Candidate in Performance Studies
Lab A, Wright Hall
Body of Knowledge, presented by ITDP, is a non-traditional performance piece that moves across theater, performance art, and visual art to explore ways in which memories are embodied and transformed across time. Immersed in the sometimes-violent, sometimes humorous, de-restoration of art, one woman tears her way through the past by way of “forgotten” objects and releases their stories anew. Audience members are invited to participate on multiple levels in this experiment that recasts relationships between materiality and memory, and questions whether such a thing exists as a “true story.”
Rated PG-13, this performance lasts approximately 50 minutes. Seating is limited on a first-come, first served basis with suggested donation of $5.
