Dorit Cypis presents a ten-act interactive presentation on identity, difference and conflict – key themes in the upcoming collaborative research project, One Another. Here, interested audience members will be invited to apply to participate in the seven-month process, where, if selected, they will progress through several rounds of rigorous collective inquiry and self-examination.

Dorit Cypis, Israeli, Canadian, American, has explored themes of history, identity, and social relations as an artist, educator and social activator since the 1980s. Her work, poetic, formal, body full and political, traverses performance, photography, immersive media installation and social practice. The civic community programs she has created include Kulture Klub Collaborative, initiated in 1992, for artists and home-less youth to bridge survival and inspiration. She has written on identity and social relations for books and journals and has designed curriculum for colleges and universities. Her current artwork, Close Your Eyes If You Want to See, transposes a proverb on human relations to visual braille then interpreted by musicians as musical score to transform seeing to listening. Peoples Lab is her initiative to build creative leadership for social change.
