PAST DATES AND TIMES
- Friday, Dec 13, 2019 7 pm
Through a stylized, magickal ritual of healing, two performers demonstrate physical (dis)ability and mental illness, and the process of care and dependency. Inspired by Yoko Ono’s Cut Piece, first performed in 1965, this work activates the audience by inviting them to interact with the primary performer’s body. Rather than audience members taking objects from the performer as they did in Ono’s performance, they will be asked to offer objects as a ritual sacrifice, symbolically healing the performer’s body and mind.
Altar(er) Hex is open Saturdays from 12-5 pm, or by appointment, through January 3. Admission is free; donations are encouraged.

About Hexus Collective:
Hexus is an anonymous, artist-led, curatorial and performance art collective seeking, finding and promoting mysticism through visual, performance and sound art. Formed among soulmates in 2018, our work is rooted in alterity theory and concerned especially with intersectional activism encompassing disability, queer folks, cyberfeminism, alliances with POCs, and anticapitalism. We emphasize collectivity as a strategy to reveal the importance of care and mutual dependency in resistance to socially dominant ideas about the productive bodymind within patriarchal capitalism.
