8pm: dana michel: yellow towel. per the artist’s request, the doors will close at 8pm. because of the intimate physical arrangement of the theatre, there is no admittance after the doors have closed. please feel free to arrive early and enjoy a drink at collective cac. as a child, dana michel would drape a yellow towel on her head in an attempt to emulate the blonde girls at school. as an adult, she now revisits the imaginary world of her alter-ego in a performative ritual free of cover-ups or censorship. blending austerity and absurdity, she digs into black culture stereotypes, turning them inside out to see whether or not she can relate. we witness her allowing a strange creature to emerge from this excavation in a slow and disconcerting metamorphosis that we follow with fascination. cac. $15. >>
