SOUNDS FOR THE ORGANS
Re: Empathy The Nature
by Stella Geppert
Changing Room presents “SOUNDS FOR THE ORGANS / Re: Empathy The Nature, 2022”, a performance by Stella Geppert that deals with the material and functional states of human organs in relation to other beings and landscapes.
Stella Geppert uses sound to activate the vital human organs—kidneys, stomach, liver, lungs, and heart—to stimulate connections within nature and with other species. Through situating herself within the organs, Stella Geppert allows the inside of the body to come into communicate with the outside.
The performance begins at 8PM.
Please arrive early as there is limited capacity.
