Face Work at Art Matters!

Face Work will be presented at Concordia’s student organized Art Matters Festival at the Yellow Fish Gallery in 2015.

Choreography: Lucy Fandel. Dancer-collaborators: Kim L.Rouchdy, Aliah Schwartz

Two women literally and figuratively lose face, both to one another and to the strangers around them. The grotesque facial language takes over their bodies reflecting the mechanisms that structure social interactions and self performances.

Inspired by the writings of Erving Goffman.
