Event: PERFORMANCE: The Glass Eye Featuring Hot Hands & members of Victorious Dance Company
Date: Friday, Feb 26, 7-9pm
*Space is limited/ Arrive Early

The placement of a camera on a body of authority as a deterrent of violence to another has created new forms of perception and symbolism concerning race relations and the growing paranoia for “the other” from both citizens and those sworn to protect them. The Glass Eye is a multi-disciplinary performance piece for voice, music, dance and film concerning the disembodiment of the black body through police violence; and the subsequent protests in reaction to these incidents—witnessed through the camera eye.
