Domestic Partner is an evening of two performance/installation works by Aki Sasamoto and Arturo Vidich. Each work has its own internal logic, coexisting within the confines of the shared space and time. Concerned with the introverted psyches of secretive or mechanized minds, two artists will create and perform inside her/his domestic environment. their works were developed independently but can be perceived as a set. Like a random interview, attention switches back and forth between the two personas, sometimes overlapping. the separate stories will crystallize in relation to each other, and will cooperate in sustaining the flow of the Chocolate Factory's upstairs space. Secrets of My Mother's Child is based on a series of interviews Sasamoto conducted with her mother. She plays a detective sniffing out the secrets in her adventurous, sculptural home. How could the hidden personal histories wander off, and where did they go? Sasamoto seems like a normal inhabitant, but is in fact undercover, masking her true intentions. Her mission is to find out how one's emotional history can be tucked away behind aged bureaus and inside striped socks. Vidich performs a series of vignettes in A New theory of Biology. He conducts a radio interview with himself about a compelling novel he never wrote. Live video and computer software fragment Vidich's frame of mind, inviting an alternative to direct communication. there is a rickety structure that rolls through the space, a system of absurd mousetraps that catch or release the performer's thoughts. A dancing robot reveals that mechanical entities have complex emotions. Each piece is a scrutiny of the transhumanist movement-where is the morality in mortality? After each night's performance, special guests Alsarah and Matt Bauder will take turns performing live music. Alsarah and her collaborator blend classical songs from North East Africa and a crackly digitized vocal. Matt Bauder brings highly experimental, highly creative, highly improvised compositions of his own.
