Physical Education (P.E.) is a social rite that profiles the prowess of youth, the abundance of strength. When a disabled body executes this social rite, it performs prowess differently, yet as jubilantly. Referencing the typical exercises and pillars of its namesake, Jerron Herman’s Phys. Ed. B will explore physical education through a revisionist lens and interpret unearthed movements from a hip, disabled body. Compounding on notions of youth and grace, Phys. Ed. B exercises both restraint and abandon, easily exhausting the performer until he decides otherwise. Phys. Ed. B examines the sublime in the mundane.

About PASS: Performing Arts Salon Saturdays
PASS is a curated performance series presented at the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G). The salon’s focus is on original works in performing arts (music, dance, theater, and multi-media) in different stages of development. When possible, work is developed in residence at Snug Harbor. Each PASS has a reception and a post-performance artist talk moderated by curator Melissa West, Snug Harbor’s Vice President of Curation and Production.
