Performance Summary:
A bold melding of immersive multidisciplinary performance, intimate personal narrative, and theory, Geologic Formations explores the present-unseen: the way socio-political events haunt the individual and collective body. Curious about her experience of the present-unseen  – invisible chronic illness impacting the (myo)fascia, and the invisibilized intergenerational impacts of war, genocide and displacement, specifically the 1943 liquidation of the Bia?ystok Ghetto, Poland – mia susan amir, with collaborators, creates an interactive experience that crosses and collapses time and geography; to talk to ghosts; to decode what shapes our perceptions; to face the limits and possibilities of empathy. Historically inspired, Geologic Formations is a response to the contemporary rise of fascism.
