Chez Bushwick Presents: Compagnie Ghislain Roussel

Chez Bushwick presents Compagnie Ghislain Roussel (Stéphane Ghislain Roussel & Julie Läderach) as they perform "Fluxus Variations in Time and Space: A Lecture Performance in memoriam to Charlotte Moorman (EXIT 1 & 2)."
October 22 & 23, 2015 at 7:30pm

361 Manhattan Avenue, Brooklyn

Tickets: $12 in advance, $15 at the door (cash only)

Fluxus Variations in Time and Space (EXIT 1 & 2) is conceived as the second Opus of a lecture performance created in 2012 at the Museum of Modern Art in Luxembourg (and showed afterwards in several European Museums). Devoted to Fluxus and conceived as an homage to iconic american cellist of the 1970s & 1980s Charlotte Moorman, the project is to question the limits between fiction and reality, art and life, by exploring more precisely both the interactions of time and space, and the impact and responsibility of the audience in the course and structuring of the performance.

“I would just say that theater is something that interests both the eye and the ear. Both public senses are sight and hearing; taste, touch and smell are more suited to intimate situations, non-public. The reason I want my definition of theater to be so simple is that it is possible to consider the life of every day like theater.”  – John Cage
