"100 Offerings For Peace: Day 4: The Black Body"
The Black Body is a documented collection from a seven-day performance by Anthony Sims. The performance took on the form of a Tableau Vivant, in other words, a living picture. The piece explores simple activities that have resulted in the death of a black body. Some of these include: driving, going to church, purchasing candy, jogging, breathing, and many others. The work also explores activism/protest as performance and a universal body that goes unnoticed. Although people of color have different experiences from one another, how our bodies are seen in the media makes for a shared experience. by Anthony Sims, Performing Arts, Performing Arts, Day 4 / July 6, 2020.
