call for participants / sacrifice : the performance

In collaboration with battery opera performance, MAI is looking for 12 participants to take part in a 1 hour session with the artists David McIntosh and Arash & Aryo Khakpour in questioning what exactly is a Sacrifice. During this research/performance they will ask their guests a series of questions, and then try to perform a sacrifice for the participants. You do not have to perform or participate other than being present and answering a few questions.

Sacrifice, created by David McIntosh, Aryo Khakpour, and Arash Khakpour, is a performance for one audience member, a “prescription” following an informal conversation and a short interview. The work is derived…

Arash and Aryo Khakpour

The Khakpour brothers have been partnering in creating performances for the past 5 years under the company name of The Biting School. In the space between the grotesque and the beautiful, between humour and ethics, they explore the dynamics of power, the implications of ideologies, and the recurrence of mythologies.
