World Premiere of "Whew! Age"
While no audience participation is required, Marisa Olson will invoke the familiar persona of the self-help "guru" in encouraging viewers to think about the role of mindfulness and positive thinking in their interactions with the environment. Her message is ultimately to stop freaking out and start chilling out. Expect kitsch and giggles as much as tranquility and a reawakening of your bodily senses.
Marisa Olson's work combines performance, video, drawing & installation to address the cultural history of technology, the politics of participation in pop culture & the aesthetics of failure.
