Hannah Hughes: Absolute Contingency

  • Bendix Building 1206 Maple Avenue Suite 805 Los Angeles, CA, 90015 United States (map)

Courting disaster, making a game of the accident through performance allows us to make a creative relationship to contingency. “Creation or collapse, the accident is an unconscious oeuvre, an invention in the sense of uncovering what was hidden, just waiting to happen… fruit of Progress… what is beneath any knowledge.” (Virilio) I work with accidents, games, potlatch and other historical religious forms to design performances that address our collective moment of fragmentation. Can we live with and even affirm absolute contingency? Yes!
