March-April 2020: "STRIKING UP" at the Cummer Museum
What do we choose to protect and what do we choose to destroy? Using the Cummer Museum of Art and Garden's upcoming exhibit Striking Power: Iconoclasm in Ancient Egypt as inspiration, Phase Eight creators will dive into the nature of religious artifacts and our historical obsession with their destruction or preservation. This original performance response will challenge audiences to think of the objects that hold power in their own lives as well as examine how iconoclasm can be used as a tool of both oppression and liberation.
Thanks to all who auditioned. Phase Eight is excited to work with Andres Bravo, Grace Bryan, Theo Canty, Casey Deming, Ebony Payne English, Ryan Sinclair, and Samantha Watson Corbitt on this project.
