* COVID 19 PRECAUTIONS - These visits are performances in that there is a "live" aspect. They only happen with another person present but they follow all COVID 19 protocols for modified phase 1. I'm getting tested weekly for COVID 19 in advance of the weekend's performances. I will never be in the same room as you and will always wear a mask indoors. For safety and artistic reasons, the performance is only open to one audience member at a time. There is time between and during each visit to let fresh air circulate through the space. This experience should feel even safer than being in a grocery store or even walking through a gallery with a couple other people in the building. If you have any concerns, please contact me. 

This work is part of a larger body of work commissioned by the re:Frame Festival in partnership with the Contemporary Arts Center.
