Shine Piece (After Yoko)

SHINE PIECE (AFTER YOKO)

December 13, 2019

Hexus presents a performance centered on physical (dis)ability and mental illness, and the importance of mutual care and dependency. Inspired by Yoko Ono’s Cut Piece, first performed in 1965, this work activates the audience by inviting them to interact with the primary performer’s body. Rather than audience members taking objects from the performer as they did in Ono’s performance, they will be asked to offer objects as part of a magickal ritual, symbolically healing the performer’s body and mind.
