Carolyn Lazard, Geelia Ronkina, & Constantina Zavitsanos

This evening, like every evening day or nighttime, is gathered in our shared and irrefutable incapacity. Who do we arrive with, and what does it mean to never arrive alone? Carolyn LazardGeelia Ronkina and Constantina Zavitsanos meet outside for a series of experiments in un/solicited advice, crip foresight, among other improvisational forms toward being together.
