ISP Curatorial Program

Thurs, June 1, 2017
6:30–8 pm

Susan and John Hess Family Theater

“I don't know how to express anger physically. There are reasons for this and consequences. A performance of fire. And water and fire. And earth. There is wonderful power in the wound.” —Aisha Sasha John

Aisha Sasha John is a singing dancer and author of I have to live (2017) and THOU (2014). This will be the first iteration of the aisha of oz performed in New York. 

The show runs for approximately one hour. This performance of the aisha of oz is presented as part of the ISP Curatorial exhibition, That I am reading backwards and into for a purpose, to go on.

Tickets are required ($8 adults; $6 members, students, and seniors).

The Susan and John Hess Family Theater is equipped with an induction loop and infrared assistive listening system. Accessible seating is available.
