Glass House Presents

Sahra Motalebi: Phenomenal Overlay

In this site-responsive performance, Sahra Motalebi considers the human voice as scenographic material that recasts the affective potential of the Glass House interior. As an extension of the performance, Motalebi will lead scene-building exercises for invited participants that inform the construction of a new sculptural work.
