“Visual artists who create performance works are nothing new, but Claude Wampler, a tiny woman with austere artistic intent, is a wonder.” —New York Times

This more-than-meets-the-eye performance is equal parts rock show and art installation—polar bears, smoke, ghost rock, and the unexpected coexist, twisting between formality and playful abandon, virtuality and reality. Championed as an unfettered, boundary-hopping force, Claude Wampler has spent the past decade researching, reformulating, and destabilizing the notions of theatrical expectations to challenge audiences in the best of all possible ways. Limited seating.
