Around The World In A Lunar Day
Stacy Makishi is performing Around the World in a Lunar Day as part of the Experiences of the Dark programme in Miroslaw Balka’s installation How it Is at TATE Modern.
We spend a third of our lives in darkness, yet the dark is more often than not something we strive to eliminate. The unknown is full of overwhelming possibilities that we can either shun or embrace. The evening at TATE includes a guided discussion with Hugh Huddy, exploring how blindness can lead one to redefine darkness. This will be followed by Around the World in a Lunar Day, a performance by Stacy Makishi that teases out the strangeness of everyday life and leaves one feeling less lonely. It is an upliftingly sad and elegiac tale about love, loss and moonlight.
Please note that events take place inside How It Is. Seating will be on the floor of the installation, cushions or fold up chairs welcome.
Around the World in a Lunar Day was commissioned by TILT.
