ASHLEY HUNT – NOTES ON THE EMPTYING OF A CITY

November 16, 2010 from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
CCS Bard Video Gallery

Notes on the Emptying of a City is a performance that acts as a dismantled film, where a narrator pieces together the sounds, images and storytelling of a documentary before a live audience. Based upon experiences in New Orleans during the months following Hurricane Katrina, the piece considers what it meant to be present in that time and space with a camera and microphone, leading viewers through difficult questions of race, visibility and speech, the writing of history, emerging economies of risk and catastrophe, and how the political crisis of Katrina continues to speak to our political lives.
