Something elegant, like this
by Anat Shinar
Directed by Sarah Myers
In her new solo, Something elegant, like this, Anat Shinar deconstructs the labor and power embedded within the contemporary cult of domesticity. Publicly performing household chores, Shinar highlights the illusion of liberation, descending into isolation as control and recklessness collide.
