Co-Produced by: mia susan amir and Mischa Shadloo

Project Description:
The words fascia and fascism share an etymological root, the Latin word, fasces, which means, “bundle.”

A bold melding of immersive multidisciplinary performance, intimate personal narrative, and theory, Geologic Formations explores the present-unseen: the way socio-political events haunt the individual and collective body.

Curious about her experience of the present-unseen – invisible chronic illness, and the invisibilized intergenerational impacts of war, attempted genocide and displacement (specifically the 1942-43 liquidation of the Bialystok Ghetto, Poland) – mia susan amir, with collaborators, creates an interactive experience that crosses and collapses time and geography; to talk to ghosts; to decode what shapes our perceptions; to face the limits and possibilities of empathy. Historically inspired, Geologic Formations is a response to the contemporary rise of fascism.
