DIS-RUPTED: A PERFORMANCE BY SANTINA AMATO
Crosstown Arts 430 / 430 N. Cleveland December 4, 2018 - December 4, 2018
Dis-rupted is a durational performance that focuses on the materiality of bread dough and women’s bodies in a designated space.
This will be the largest project Amato has attempted with bread dough; inviting up to 15 female-identifying women to create 600-800 lbs of dough in a public performance setting.
The (anti)climax of the event sees the performers lay, stand or sit in the dough as it rises around them, consuming their bodies. This work is a continuation of Amato’s investigations into the materiality of dough and her focus on the notion of the intimate body, especially the female body.
