[8:tension] Young Choreographers’ Series Marissa Perel: Pain Threshold
Marissa Perel: Pain Threshold © Gerhard F. Ludwig
"Pain Threshold" takes its name from the measurement of pain the doctor uses to test the patient. In Perel’s work, this term involves more than the threshold of physical pain. Engaging in questions of openness, vulnerability, control, consent, care, and intimacy, "Pain Threshold" invites the audience to bear witness to their own emotional and intellectual thresholds. In a filigree unfolding choreography, we follow questions like: Is it possible to become a witness of another person’s physical or emotional pain without giving in to an impulse – to save, to solve, to turn away or to reject? NOTICE: This performance explicitly deals with sexual violence.
