Thank you, Seth Nehil, for the trailer!

a world, a world invites audiences into a hyperactive landscape saturated by shards of movement, image, and language, a tumult that stutters and sputters out, yielding to a morespacious, minimal, and meditative world.

Performed for an intimate audience in an extravagantly immersive environment designed by Linda Austin and Sarah Marguier, this work is the culminating chapter in (Un)Made, a body of work investigating the limits of personhood.

In 2015 the (Un)Made Solo Relay began as a solo was passed along from performer to performer as in a game of telephone, in a series taking place over 6 months. In November 2016, the second chapter, the last bell rings for you, gathered 18 participants with varying levels of performance experience to learn and perform a work that, through informal rituals, texts, songs and interactions with everyday objects, generated a web of transitory community relationships that were both celebrated and mourned.

For a world, a world, nine performers who have been working with Austin throughout channel impulses generated from the cultural content that surrounds, passes through, and constitutes all of us, until released to luxuriate in a space of emptiness, attention and devotion.Throughout, the lure of performance is tested, resisted, and embraced.
