Mind Games is a one-night-only hybrid event featuring diverse art forms in an arrangement of intermedia, all invested in physical and psychological concentrations and meditations. Each work is engaged in a different way by the audience as a means of creating both contrast and connection through shifting formats. The works collectively explore concepts of focus, forgiveness, dislocation, grief, connection, construction, remembrance, the unconscious, and transcendence.

Performance date and time:
