The Comfort Zone: A Performance Lecture (NYC Premiere)
Karen Therese (Australia)

Presented by Centre of Performance Research (CPR)

Saturday January 14th and Sunday January 15th at 8PM  
Post-Performance artist talk on the 15th with Professor Sarah Miller

Tickets: $12

Karen Therese's solo work is ...adventurous and certainly one of the best...brave...haunting and wonderful. RealTime

Comfort: Contentment, ease, something relieving suffering or worry.

What makes us comfortable? What do we do to maintain our personal comfort? The collaboration investigates 'The Comfort Zone Theory' as defined by business analyst and psychologist Alistair White. This theory is used ironically to measure the anxiety levels of both performer and audience. The work draws from business development strategies such as 'performance management'', 'performance development', and 'performance incentives'. The lecture provokes the audience through survey questions, graphs and statistical evidence, which relates both to their immediate experience of comfort and the comfort they find within themselves in relation to the broader society.
Working within the juncture of lecture performance, television journalism, and business conference models, the subject matter provides opportunities for many provocations and questions about the very practice of performance and our culture of creating performance. While the work utilizes these discoveries to comment on the complexities of our modern-day relationship to love and intimacy.

Collaborating Artists: Karen Therese (performer/writer), Chris Wilson (video artist) and Tiffany Bakker (journalist).
