It happens in small groups, at an outdoor location. You will be given a series of assignments — say, focusing on a given object, or watching a certain person walk down the street. It’s not nearly as simple as it sounds and, as they say, results may vary. You may gain a sense of how your sight has been conditioned over a lifetime. You may realize, with dismay, how little you actually notice of what crosses your eyes every day. You may discover something beautiful, even revelatory, that you’d ignored a thousand times in your life. What van den Berg gives us is a sensory adventure, a reminder of how much our perception can be altered, and, on a simpler level, a reintroduction to the pleasures of the senses. There’s beauty all around us — all you have to do is look. Please note: This performance involves walking, and takes place in parts outdoors, rain or shine.
Presented with PuSh International Performing Arts Festival.
