A screening co-curated by Butoh Chicago and In/habit – an expanded performance art series

7pm- 10pm at Hume Gallery, 3242 West Armitage Avenue

A night of short films and conversations.

Longing for someone or something to be there with us is longing for solidarity, for presence, for love, for understanding, for flesh, for friendship. Battles, repair and resilience only exist in relation to and the battlegrounds are not as desolate when you are with me.

To acknowledge our need for one another, and how we might seek to repair our feelings of loss and isolation, the harm done to our body and the body politics, broken relationships, and share in the beauty that might be our shared grief.
