Maura Brewer & Paul Pescador: State of the Union
Armory Center for the Arts is pleased to present State of the Union by Maura Brewer and Paul Pescador, a one-night Zoom performance, on Sunday, November 1, 2020 at 5:00 PM PST. (Note that Daylight Saving Time ends on November 1; set clocks back one hour.) The performance will be followed by a conversation between the artists moderated by Mandy Harris Williams.
State of the Union is a debate that will take place the day after Halloween, two days before the presidential election (the spookiest day of the year!), and on Daylight Saving Time (fall back!). Artists Paul Pescador and Maura Brewer will face off on a variety of themes including victim complexes, tautological loops, and the fantasy of escape. The 1996 film Scream serves as a guide through which the artists explore archetypes of victim and killer in contemporary politics.
