Public Program:
Keith Hennessy: Almost Nothing, Almost Everything
Date
June 1 2010
Description
Keith Hennessy comes to the New Museum to improvise. To invent a performance from almost nothing, accessing almost everything. Curious about histories of moving bodies and bodily movement, Hennessy’s improvisations are a dynamic mash-up of Judson, body art, stand up, ridiculous, modern, lecture, and ritual (where ridiculous means, among other things, subversive camp, and ritual is about how a group of people experience magic and/or death together). He might go off on a political rant, he might take questions from the audience; he’ll probably change costumes and be naked.
