HERE presents
KOSMOS INVERS: The Morphology of XOS
By Kalan Sherrard | A Dream Music Puppetry Presentation
Mar 5-14

As the Earth crumbles around us and we continue to kill everything in our path, it is time we face the paradoxic integration of evils within ourselves: sterility and garbage, meaninglessness, sexuality as the sin of origin, the contradictory drives of human things.

Kalan Sherrard, a street, subway and alt puppeteer-performance artist with a cult international following (also known as Enormous Face), presents a new solo piece with a powerful environmental message. Combining his stunning artworld level esthetics and sensibility with his deeply committed performance and personal philosophies, uses his hands, his feet, and his teeth to animate his fascinatingly crafted universe and invite us into it.

Schedule: Thu-Sat @ 7pm, Sat-Sun @ 2pm, and Fri, Mar 6 @ 10pm
HERE, 145 6th Ave, New York, NY 10013

Tickets from $25. Save $5 with code SKINT5 HERE!
