HIGH PERFORMANCE –> NON-GRATA+VV/LD TORUS+FRIENDZ
Nov 7, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - Nov 8, 2015 @ 1:00 am| $10
WILD TORUS and NON GRATA present HIGH PERFORMANCE, a fully immersive performance art experience that pushes reality and consciousness to their limits. This one-night event brings together local, national, and international performance and sound artists for an evening of post-human experimentation, and fully participatory ritual. In the post-digital where life functions at quantum speed, HIGH PERFORMANCE will focus on expanding human physical capacities and exploring altered states of being. This event will be held at LAST FRONTIER (www.last-frontier.nyc/) a new cutting edge art and performance space, located on the fringes of Brooklyn’s industrial landscape.
