Enter to win a pair of tickets to the October 24th, 8pm performance of Colleen Thomas’ Her(e) Repetitive Blueprint at the 92nd Street Y. About the Work Colleen Thomas begs the question: Can you ever truly see us as equals? She’s pissed, sick of wondering if things can ever be equal, if we can see each other as humans. Reflecting on the current cultural landscape and a desire to address issues of justice and equality, Thomas draws both upon her perspective and experience as a female artist in this evening-length work. Tackling the inevitability of how we see what we see, Thomas has crafted a work that questions the social paradigms embedded in our bodies and how that translates to the world. We see what we think we know, not what stands before us. In Her(e) Repetitive Blueprint, the inevitability of our perception is called into question. How can we see clearly if we are beholden to the stories we keep telling ourselves? And yet we try, we must. We scrap it all and start over knowing that there is no clean slate, only these bodies and the web of perceived social, gender and racial narratives that run rampant across the shapes and mounds that hold our blood and guts. Life is here, this moment. Now….and now…and now. And then we begin again — even when the imprints remain.
