PhDArts researcher k.g. Guttman will be presenting her performance  "I asked the audience to close one eye" at Blackwood Gallery's Running with Concepts: The Choreographic Edition, at the University of Toronto, Canada on September 17th, 2016

I ask the audience to close one eye” is a choreographic coming-into-form of personal/political latencies of love, questions of genetic pre-dispositions, and animate/inanimate relations.

The performance mixes the digital presence of the archive with the format of the live interview. Using performance tactics of proximity, framing, pausing and pacing, the performance makes unlikely connections between strangers and objects.
