Hotter Than July; I Just Might Burn You in August
Rush Jackson & Vitche Boul-Ra,
Icebox Project Space, Philadelphia, PA
August 19th, 2020

Performance, audio/video installation
120-minute duration

Hotter Than July: I Just Might Burn You in August was a 120-minute performance/film collaboration by Rush Jackson and Vitche Boul-ra, imagining the Icebox Project Space as an open landscape for an alternative and communal spatial experience through rhythmic approaches to audio, video, and the spiritual/fleshly body. It exists as a transmutation of external and internal space, an investigation of repositioning.

The Icebox becomes a space of Displacement, Recognition, Hots before Colds, and a pilgrimagepoint to negotiate the collective and individual composition. Emphasizing improvisation, attendees are encouraged to surpass the witness point to develop a relationship to participation—to Being—that feels fruitful. Attendees manifest agency, and when the space asks a question, they reply with queries rather than answers.”
