Jesper Just


Danish artist and filmmaker Jesper Just, in collaboration with Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon, charts the fractured, ever-changing topography of modern experience in this shape-shifting ballet. Inspired by Jorge Luis Borges’ fantasy of an immense map constructed on a one-to-one scale, Interpassivities immerses participants in a life-size no-man’s land. A self-triggering music machine communicates contrapuntally with towering video projections, while groups of laborers in pedestrian clothing and dancers pinball around the space, intermingling with audience members. Each action has a reaction—but what is controlling what? Like Borges, Just rethinks the meaning of maps, who makes them, and the artificial borders we create.

This performance is immersive, and audience members will be standing during the show. There are limited seats, and anyone who requires accommodations is encouraged to share their needs with staff before the performance so we can coordinate assistance.
