Please arrive on time! There is no late seating for this performance.

Mina Nishimura’s Bladder Inn (and X, Y, Z, W) was created in conversation with an original text of the same title, developed by Nishimura with the intention of finding language evocative of internal landscapes.

Blurring the boundaries between inner and outer space, visible and invisible presences, and images and abstract forms, Bladder Inn (and X, Y, Z, W) hosts what Nishimura calls “a slippery journey and fleeting fantasy of wandering bodies.”

The work invites both audiences and performers to consider peripheral spaces of architecture, perception, and sound specific to the architecture of St. Mark’s Church.

Performed by Mina Nishimura with Martita Abril, Jonathan Burkland, Lydia Chrisman, Samuel Hanson, Maho Ogawa, Ilana Stuelpner, and Niko Tsocanos
