The Fever tests the limits of individual and collective responsibility, and our willingness to be there for one another. Performed in complete collaboration with the audience, it examines how we assemble, organize and care for the bodies around us. Who will you be when our eyes are on you? What will we see when we all look your way?
Saturday September 16th, 5:30pm – Roundtable discussion with Jacob Gallagher-Ross (University of Toronto) alongside a diverse range of scholars from the University at Buffalo co-sponsored by the University at Buffalo Humanities Institute’s Performance Research Workshop.
