Beyond Joy and Sorrow

6.30 PM

They say that there is no such thing as a ‘bad’ emotion. But what is beyond Joy and Sorrow? What is contemporary enlightenment?

This is a performative, tongue in cheek, poetic investigation of what is beyond Joy and Sorrow, an answer to fast insta-poetry, self-help quotes, common day mysticism, and Youtube gurus.

During an hour-long whirlwind of performances, poems, declarations, and calls for action, a line-up of artist draw upon contemporary popular social media culture to answer questions on what it means to seek contemporary enlightenment in a world that seems to only be able to move faster, and where time and place no longer have meaning.
