About

Based on the philosophical and creative research for the upcoming live performance NOTHINGBEING, this two-hour symposium features the performance’s primary collaborators: David Thomson, Anna Martine Whitehead, Samita Sinha, and Takahiro Yamamoto. After a short introduction by Yamamoto, there will be three recorded performance presentations: Thomson’s current and ongoing practice, an excerpt from Whitehead’s current project “FORCE! An opera in three acts”, and Yamamoto’s new collaborative project with filmmaker Roland Dahwen.

The symposium will conclude with a live roundtable conversation with all the collaborators about the core questions and process of making this project. A Q&A with the public follows and live captions will be available. This program is free with registration. To register click here.
