Aliciacarmen is an attempt to hammer away the logics of identity which underlie the dynamics of consumerism.
Armed with hammers, the performers insist again and again on the action of hammering. But in what way and to what end? Absent another object, the gesture of hitting a hammer announces itself like a series of loud questions. What does this object we think we know so well do when it’s not being used to do the one thing we think its good for? Can a violent act impose the most subtle shifts in our logic?
