This looks fricking amazing. Heather B. Swann’s ‘Nervous’ is a collaborative live performance and art installation.
Spinning out of the theme of intense and extreme emotional states of being conceived of by Swann as ‘the Mental’. “The audience will be inside this Mental, inside the brain as it feels and experiences a range of emotions embodied in the sculptures, abstracted by the music, felt by all”.
Have a look at what you’re in for.
