Performer/Tattooer with Saint Genet

Krems, Austria

"The world premiere of the six-day performance “Frail Affinities” makes poetic and satirical reference to the tragedy of the “Donner Party” from 1846. A group of settlers migrating across the United States became trapped in the snow of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and endured unimaginable horrors. Saint Genet’s method insists on images becoming obsessions, opening mental and physical spaces on a periphery where suffering, pain, joy, delirium, and death flow over into one another."
