followed by conversation with MARIA TRABULO
Jeremiah Day’s personal and idiosyncratic performances bring together the forms of the slide-show, the tradition of the bard, and the focus on the body as working material drawn from post-modern dance. Emerging from research into the work of Hannah Arendt and in particular her widely ignored affirmative argument for council democracy, as elaborated by the writer and activist Fred Dewey, the performance with slide shows depicts key sites of Istanbul and New England.JEREMIAH DAY will perform 'THE CHAIR REMAINS EMPTY / BUT THE PLACE IS SET' as part of the exhibition 'Desertado. Algo que aconteceu pode acontecer novamente.'
