Blur is a solo performance that experiments with visibility and invisibility, and the relationship between performer, audience, and object. Viewers are invited to navigate a phonetic landscape of Cuyjet’s voice and text, through the lens of race and objectification. Her costume is composed of close-up images of her own skin.

Reading. “Being Seen. An Interview,” with Tara Aisha Willis.
