To Celebrate Dark Matter


To Celebrate Dark Matter is a performative workshop dedicated to the ritual of “soft head-banging” and the practice of improvisation and adaptability as life tools in times of precarity. In contrast to the violent head-banging associated with death metal music, “soft head-banging” instead appropriates the gesture and transforms it by emphasizing bodily care. In the guided process of the workshop, which parallels structural elements of Scores for Daily Living, guests are encouraged to amplify their movements and express their personal intentions with clarity to the furthest reaches of their capabilities and imagination.
