Schwanze-Beast is writer/performance artist Alina Troyano's latest endeavor with long-time collaborator filmmaker Ela Troyano and actor/director Susanne Sachsse. Part psychological sci-fi thriller part performative scientific lecture, Schwanze-Beast delves into biotech, bio-politics and civil rights and poses the question: "what separates human from beast?"
The residency with Carmelita Troyano is made possible, in part, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, Marlboro College and VPL's Creation Fund donors.
Co-presented by VPL and the Massachusetts International Festival for the Arts
WHERE: Wednesday, May 27 @7PM at Marlboro College, Marlboro, VT
