Out There: Mercurial George

Daily from Jan. 11-13
8 p.m.
Performance Art, Theater

A bowl and flour sifter on an old card table. Bedding strewn on the floor. Some synth music and strobe lights. Montreal performer/choreographer Dana Michel moving haltingly around the stage. A former sports fanatic—she was a competitive runner and played football—Michel now makes solo works inspired by aesthetic disjunction, cultural disorder, sculptural practices, and what she calls “the bulimic logic of hip-hop.” Mercurial George is part of the Walker Art Center’s Out There 2018, which provides performance junkies with works beyond the norm. In Michel’s piece, realities are juxtaposed and time is multidimensional. Your senses and perceptions will be stretched.
