Them. You. Her. Us. We already are what they spend all their time trying to be. What’s that? Still. Here. Binaries of reality and surreality, absence and presence overlap as objects become the main performers in a show that interrogates the relationship between art, artist and the act of living. Who are we when the art is gone? What are we when we are separated? And what is left for us to measure our significance by? Exploring humanity through the lens of the non-human, Content Here shifts the balance of performance by heightening what is left when the performer steps back. This work experiments with the atmosphere generated in the relationship between people, objects, sound and light by disrupting and redistributing the conventional aspects of performance-making. A sort of anti-puppet show that grapples to fill what is hollow and grieve what was always lifeless, Content Here attempts to make room for new ways of measuring what makes our lives meaningful, letting go of and paying homage to our moments of ecstasy. A collaboration between performer Althea Young, composer Isaac Phillips and non-beings.
