cut the FAT 

 

A lecture-performance project. In progress since 2016. Premiere 2021.

 

"cut the FAT" intends to reflect on the societal and economic systems all across the world while exposing some of the flaws of capitalist societies. It represents a culmination of my research, writings, thought processes about the effects and impacts of the evolution of language, behavioral sciences, media manipulation and mental conditioning.  

It is a densely physical and auditory inquiry of the body's intangible and kinesthetic response to depict the subjective emotions and responses that objects and events can arouse in us. It's aimed through distortion, exaggeration, primitivism, and fantasy and through the vivid, jarring, violent, or dynamic application of formal elements today. It investigates political ideologies and explores the forbearance of personal breakdown within the display of moving forward in today's societies.
