Eclipse by Culture Mill / Tommy Noonan and Murielle Elizéon

April 10, 2022
7:30 am - 9:00 pm
CURRENT ArtSpace + Studio


Free admission. Reserve tickets on the Carolina Performing Arts website.

Culture Mill brings together audiences and professional artists to build an imaginary monument for a (im)possible “we.” Just before sundown, you are invited to join a choreographic practice outside CURRENT ArtSpace + Studio, which uses restorative justice practices and embodiment tools to investigate how our assembled bodies and stories might form the architecture for a togetherness we don’t yet know.

“Knowledge is only a rumor until it lives in the bones.” So goes a proverb of the Asaro Tribe of Papau New Guinea. In our current global moment, democracy, too, feels increasingly such a rumor whose complexities are not fully practiced and lived together in assembled bodies and their accompanying memories and histories.

Presented as part of the Southern Futures initiative at CPAEclipse is a performance of this embodied social practice at the core of democracy.

Located on the green outside CURRENT ArtSpace + Studio. Mask-wearing required. Runtime is approximately 90 minutes.
