31 conversations with death.
Performed: bbycastles in NYC and Mumok in Vienna
Documentation by Claudia Hill
A performative reading of a series of texts engaging with precarity, its production of violence onto the psyche and body, and its relationship to how the spectre of death and mortality manifest within otherwise mundane interactions and circumstances.

A second iteration of this reading was performed at Mumok in Vienna in collaboration with Vladimir Miller, Claudia Hill, Julian Weber, Roberto Martinez and Anne Juren as a part of the performance installation, Unstable Nights. This iteration impliments a  gradual distortation of textual material through breaking linguistic structure, introducing obstruction of sound, and warping pronunciation so that the meaning of text and sound eventually dissolve into gibberish, an attempt to sonically manifest precarity from the background of everyday circusmtance into the foreground of our attention.
