Final chance to experience “Becoming Blind (as a Bat)”! After two sold-out performances at @Olfactory_Art_Keller in January, I’m doing one last encore of this scented storytelling journey on Wednesday, February 21, 7pm. Tickets are going fast–hope to hear you there!
“Becoming Blind (as a Bat): A Scented Storytelling Journey” joins my worlds – writing, performance, smell (Aromatica Poetica)- and is pretty much a dream come true…
There will be scented, tactile tokens, handmade by me for this Olfactory Art Keller performance for each audience member to touch, sniff, and take home with them.
Thanks to all who bought tickets to the January 20 performance of “Becoming Blind (as a Bat): A Scented Storytelling Journey” at @olfactory_art_keller ! We are now SOLD OUT, but don’t despair…
We’ve added another date, same time, same place, the following Saturday:
January 27, 2024, 7pm
Olfactory Art Keller
25A Henry Street
New York, NY 10002
For most of her life, writer, performer, and founder of Aromatica Poetica, Dr. M. Leona Godin, told her story as a journey of “going blind.” Now she tells her story as a journey of “becoming blind.” A metamorphosis like any other, transforming from sighted person to blind person entails pain and beauty and excitement. Godin will punctuate her stories with scented, tactile tokens, handmade by her for this Olfactory Art Keller performance. These tokens give audience members something to touch, sniff, and take home with them. Blackout shades will be provided—because you don’t need your eyes for this!
“Becoming Blind (as a Bat): A Scented Storytelling Journey” appears in a bright red script with the circular tail of the “g” wrapping around Godin’s eye. The date/place info is in violet and the photo under all is as follows: Godin stands in front of a heavily graffitied metal door holding out a handful of cedar-scented red velvet tokens bathed in red neon light. She is a white woman with long brown hair wearing a black form-fitting, furry sleeveless dress and elbow-length black leather gloves. Photo by Alabaster Rhumb
