ANXIETINA: A performance by Hannah Black and Bonaventure

ANXIETINA is a perfoamnce at the ICA in words, textiles and music by writer and artist Hannah Black musician Bonaventure, and designer Ebba Fransen-Waldhor.   


By day, Anxietina is like everyone else but at night and/or in moments of great danger she is transformed by the power of anxiety into ANXIETINA, a force for simultaneous good and evil. She uses her powers to see backwards into the future, to feel the wind on the angel of history’s very vulnerable back, to fight fascism through private secular prayer and to, in the privacy of her own mind, do battle with the demons of capitalism and their endless tendrils. 


Performance:  6:45 pm  27 Jul 2016
