MIND ON HEAVEN

A hybrid performance – part documentary, part conjuring, part performance art – MIND ON HEAVEN explores the boundaries of memory and embodiment. Using live audio and video mixes, original animation, archival texts, storytelling, and dance, two performers tune in to the vibrations of the late Dennis Palmer, a self-taught, avant-garde musician and painter of the American South. 

created and performed by Ben Williams and Brian Cagle

technical supervision by Max Bernstein
