Auto-Cannibal: a Performance
February 27, 1992
Performance Time: 8pm, February 27.
Marshall Weber, former director of ATA, returns to the Bay Area to present Auto-Cannibal, a politically-charged performance art piece involving body art, sculpture, ritual and extensive audience interaction. Weber describes ‘Auto-Cannibal’ as a ‘metaphor for a person, the performer, a nation, the United States of America, or a species (homo sapiens) that eats itself and its young.’ It is a powerful statement about the social and personal denial of human loss during the U.S. invasion of Iraq.
