MARFA LIVE ARTS PRESENTS:
DOMINA DE BARDO Performance by Saint Profanus September 21, 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm Visitors may come anytime before 8:00 pm Presidio County Courthouse FREE
Marfa Live Arts presents Domina de Bardo—a one-night only audience immersive installation housed within Marfa’s oldest central architectural feature, The Presidio County Courthouse on Saturday, September 21, 2019. Performance begins at 5pm and conclude at 9pm. This is a free event and guests are invited to arrive anytime between 5pm-8pm.
Domina de Bardo is a site-specific work by the Marfa-based artist collaborative Saint Profanus founded by kb Thomason & Ria Leigh. The project is born from questions concerning the absence of the Presidio County Courthouse Goddess of Justice statue’s symbolic attributes; namely her sword, scales, and blindfold.
Patrons will be welcomed at the main entrance to the Courthouse and be ushered into a courtroom where the experience will begin. Specific details about the installation are being kept under wraps, but the artists are designing a multifaceted experience for all who attend. Audience members will navigate the roles of both observer and observed while bearing witness to a durational performance taking place in the cupola, existing in the space for the entirety of the evening length work.
The free live theater performance will include oral histories, sound/music, costumes, videos, and installations at the Courthouse. Rooms in the Courthouse and the cupola will be transformed by two immersive site-specific installations allowing both first-time and regular visitors to the Courthouse to see this public space in a new way.
