Geometry of the West

Doors at 7:30pm
Performace at 8pm
Geometry of the West is an interdisciplinary performance that examines the narratives of the West through a contemporary, multicultural and post globalization lens. Through elements of circus-trained physical performance, multi-media, and uniquely composed musical score, Geometry of the West, will deconstruct the traditional ‘Western’ as a genre of performance narrative that functioned as propaganda. This narrative facilitated the destruction of natural resources, Indigenous people and created an atmosphere that allowed American capitalism to flourish. Part story core and part collective script writing, Geometry of the West collects predictions of the ‘future West’ written by the people who live in the west to form a contemporary ‘western show’ derived from these accumulated narratives.
