GEO WYETH - HAUNTS

HAUNTS 
 A NEW MUSIC PERFORMANCE PROJECT by Geo Wyeth 
 featuring performers karel van beekom, sam miller, tanisha thompson, and niv acosta 
 additional collaboration with elizabeth orr, mariana valencia, and barbara samuels 
  19th century American gynecologist James Marion Sims, famous for perfecting his procedures on enslaved African women, encounters his biracial transgender great-great-great grandchild in a collapsed and imagined dream space.  Based on Wyeth’s own family lineage, HAUNTS retraces a contradictory history of violence and ironic inheritance through an incantation of dreams and embodied recollection. Using his body as a point of converging histories, Wyeth’s HAUNTS is an anxious meditation on the urgency of memory.   
 Developed through the support of the Jerome Foundation Travel and Research Grant, Ars Nova Residency 2009, and the San Francisco Performance Art Institute.   
 The Club at La MaMa 
 74A E 4th Street NY, NY 10003
