Rebecca Patek returns to the stage in this solo performance that looks at the events of 2014 that led to her leaving the contemporary dance/performance art world.
It has been four years since Patek's piece 'ineter(a)nal f/ear' played as part of the American Realness. At the time, her work was exploring victimization, as a survivor of rape. It was fast eclipsed when a performance was interrupted by performance artist and provocateur Ann Liv Young. The events that followed included uproar in social media and the press, calling Patek's true story into question. In 'Chasm' she finally gets the chance to tell her side of the story, and reflect on why she has chosen instead to pursue a career in medicine. In her satirical style, this piece reflects on a wider problem in the contemporary performance world still yet to face its own #METOO reckoning.
