HERE presents Culturemart 2002, a multi-disciplinary festival featuring the creative work of HERE's Artist's Residency Program, curated by Executive Director Kristin Marting. Performances include: Quartet by Heiner Muller Thursday, January 3 and Friday, January 4 at 7pm Under the direction of Ivan Talijancic, Muller's decadent requiem for the end of the millenium comes alive through a vicious and tender endgame played by two last survivors in the world on the brink of apocalypse. Stars of the Sweet Decline by Scot James Wednesday, January 9 and Thursday, January 10 at 7pm Set in Atomica, a war-ravaged and futuristic city, an imprisoned survivor makes a desperate attempt to recover both personal and collective memory amidst a melange of tragic-comic events that end up blurring the lines between fact and fiction. Comedian From a Crumbling Empire by Kristin Page Stuart Thursday, January 10 at 9:30pm and Friday January 11 at 7pm Belting out a groove news flash for the global age, Stuart plunges into the harmonic depth of humanity where the myths of material freedom, the real relics of racism, and the common quest for compassion ring 'round the clock.
