permutae [performance]

permutae. A performance and media collaboration between Mary Franck and Finley Coyl.

Permutae examined the impact of a shifting technological-biological horizon on both the individual and the larger social body, and how it allows us to change our bodies as it also works to control and classify our bodies. The performance painted a fantasy of what we want our bodies to be, balanced with our physical realities, limitations and the stresses imposed by an increasingly commodified cultural sphere. This performance was part of the Summer Special series in August 2011, performed with reception by Tessa Wills, at CounterPULSE, in San Francisco. 2010 – 11
