Event description

Description

For the 2018 VW Sunday Sessions commission, artist and performer Colin Self presents Siblings, the sixth and final part of The Elation Series, a sci-fi opera encompassing, performance, music, sculpture, and video that he has been developing since 2011.

Presented in collaboration with performers Lyra Pramuk, Tara-Jo Tashna, Sam Banks, and lexi welch, Siblings is a playful examination of Donna J. Haraway's Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene (2016), in which the author offers new ways of reconfiguring our relationship to the earth and its inhabitants in the wake of ecological devastation. Borrowing from early 20th century Russian formalist Vladimir Propp’s analysis of folktales, which determined 31 narrative units that comprise the fabric of most stories, Self seeks to create a performance not beholden to the constructs of recursive storytelling. In Self’s own words, this body of research acts as “a binding agent of queer kinship, curiously occupying text, song, and dance as inadequate forms for measuring progress amidst collapse.”
