The Mind-Body Problem
Presented virtually by The New Hazlett as part of the Community Supported Art Performance Series
Thu-Fri, September 3-4
The Mind-Body Problem is an interdisciplinary solo guitar performance that examines the relationships we make in light of rapid technological advancements that impose on our physical space.
