Live Collision International Festival presents
Tasting Blue is a durational performance installation exploring death and the voyeur. As the spectator looks through a series of holes framed in a web of fishing nets and human hair, the performers attempt to reflect the voyeur through the eye of the body, amidst hundreds of animal bones.
Taking a page from the celebratory nature of death in Day of the Dead rituals and certain Eastern cultures, Tasting Blue investigates the primordial, carnal, joyful aspects of death.
