Shawn Escarciga - Whatever You Want


Whatever You Want is an exploration of authority and how it manifests in the body when it is willingly stripped from an individual. Through a series of pre-generated commands along with those elicited by a live and digital audience, Escarciga will experiment with modes of giving and taking power as the performance plays out in real time, manipulating his body in response to lived circumstances. Informed by a background in Butoh and survival mechanisms as a queer person living with mental illness, Whatever You Want is a glimpse into the daily life of those living on the fringe.
