For the Student Pass:
1. Student passes are available against a valid Student ID card and for people under 25 years of age only. If the valid Student ID card is not presented, the donor pass will be held invalid or the General Donor Pass price will have to be paid that the door.
2. This show is durational and has no seating. Audiences can enter and exit at anytime, and are encouraged to walk through the space as they wish.
The Long and Short of It is a durational sound and performance installation. In a sparse landscape of microphones and amplifiers, bodies find, occupy, and are displaced from land. Each body must act within a set of rules, while also confronting residues of previously occupied lands. In this unrelenting cycle, bodies wither as they try to keep time. Audiences are invited to enter, move around, exit, and re-enter whenever they like.
An immersive soundscape of heavy, delicate, distorted, and sustained noise marks the setting. Dissipating time is amplified by recurring pulses. Never quite on stable ground, each body is absorbed into sequences of displacement and return. Intimacy emerges from these stark conditions. It remains unclear whether this is a map or the landscape itself.
