HARAKIRI: To Die For Performances
a collaboration between performance artists and visual artists
LOCATION: CENTRALTRAK 800 Exposition, Dallas, TX
Harakiri is a ceremonial disembowelment specifically performed in front of spectators. This public self-execution creates a ritual of performance in the act of death. An idea that is at the basis of all performance--every moment you step on the stage could be your last; if you do not leave your soul out there for all to witness, if you do not die with every performance, have you lived honorably?
Commencing Saturday, April 21, CentralTrak will be honoring those performers willing to take that risk. And each Saturday until May 19th, a new live performance will be presented in the gallery (schedule below).
SCHEDULE OF PERFORMANCES (from 8pm-10pm each Saturday):
**Sat. April 21: Jill Foltz, Tabitha Pease, George Quartz, and DGDG
**Sat. April 28: Emily Loving, Slik Stockings, Val Curry, and Spencer Brown
**Sat. May 5: Dallas Neo-Classical Ballet
**Sat. May 12: Big Rig Dance Collective and local filmmakers
**Sat. May 19: Michael Morris, Cody Ross, Andrew Blanton, and dancers
