On Beacon Second Saturday, the Beacon Yoga Studio presents Live? Die? Kill?: 4 Corners, a photo exhibition and documentary performance of artist Karen Michel.
On Sept. 11, 2001, Michel woke up in her Brooklyn apartment to the sound of the first plane hitting the Twin Towers. In the weeks that followed, the country began the long and difficult process of healing, seeking answers to questions. These are the questions that came to Michel, in what she refers to as an aural vision: What do you live for? What would you die for? What would you kill for?
For the following decade, Michel traveled, asking strangers these three questions. In 2010, Michel visited Navajo, Hopi and Ute reservations in the Four Corners region. Her performance will speak of how place and family ties affect a community. These form the basis of her April 25, 26 and 27 performances at Beacon Yoga Studio, 464 Main St., Beacon.
An exhibition and fundraiser will take place April 12, Second Saturday, from 6 to 9 p.m.
Performances begin at 8 p.m. April 25 and 26, and at 3 p.m. April 27. Suggested donation ($15) includes a glass of wine or seltzer. Visit livediekill.org.
