Performed live at The Kitchen, New York on October 23-24 2015.
Charge by Glasser(Cameron Mesirow) and Jonathan Turner is a performance exploring the hyper-personal and sensorial connective tissue of human relationships and a blurring of the senses by means of technology.
Cameron’s body is transformed into a fragmented landscape that bridges emotional sensation with human experience. Technology and social media afford us passive vantage points into human activity, at the cost of social and sensual synergy. Trade the tactile and olfactory for a low resolution edit of self. Choose whatever experience, fetish, relationship or body you can imagine and you are a click/swipe away from a willing partner.
Through a program of vocal and movement performances by Mesirow and accompanying visuals by Turner, the audience experiences the body as a show. Referencing the natural world, recognizable in it’s texture and composition, yet abstract and alien in terms of the scale of representation. Each sequence engages and augments a specific feeling and sensory organ, deepening the sacrifice of performer to audience.
