The Cloud of Unknowing (The Heart)

  • Sherr Room 10 Garden Street Cambridge, MA, 02138 United States (map)

This performance by members of Vision Lab, in conversation with Dario Robleto’s Unknown and Solitary Seas, will creatively repurpose earliest waveform recordings of blood flowing from the heart and in the brain during sleep, dreaming, and various emotional states (1874–1896) to consider how these articulations of the inner body can be translated or thought through in ways that float beneath (or, like a cloud, above) the familiar frameworks of sense-making, and how this type of poetic thinking can be connected to social and political remaking, individually and collectively. Vision Lab’s performance engages text, percussion, dance, and sensory deprivation in interactive and meditative experiments and discussion.
