About the Performance
Created in Berlin where the air is thick with collective memory, Clumsy Praying Fist is a performance piece that investigates our responses to traumatic experience—as individuals and societies. The way our brains record a threatening event is an ancient process, crucial to our survival, but at a certain point the mechanisms that are meant to defend us can become the threat themselves. Clumsy Praying Fist is a haunting and playful attempt to embrace, inhabit and escape these mechanisms of survival.
(Julia Metzger-Traber and Davide De Lillis) will be in residence in the San Francisco Bay Area from March 16th – 30th, co-presented by THEOFFCENTER with support from TheGarage, the newly formed [ABC] Art Building Consortium at KUNST-STOFF arts and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Department of Community Engagement.
