WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

As part of his first US tour, Brazilian artist Michel Groisman brings two singular pieces and several interactive and intimate experiences for children and adults to the Invisible Dog Art Center in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. By devising wearable apparatuses and sculpting his body to test the endurance and nature of the solitary human form, Groisman's soulful performances and investigative group experiences challenge preconceptions of performance and play on the values of confidence and exchange. Porta Das Maos is a performance (and a game) in which Groisman explores the possibilities of movement and shape when restricted to two fingers from one hand remaining connected to two fingers on the other. Subtle yet transfixing, Door of Hands is an endless dance to examine and then attempt on your own.
