In collaboration with local dancers and musicians, dance artist and composer Leyya Mona Tawil is bringing her day long performance Destroy// All Places to The Soap Factory. Destroy// All Places is a new ritual for new times. The performance is composed, but untethered. The artists attempt a score imbedded with mechanisms that make its execution increasingly impossible, forcing the material into stages of deterioration and evolution. ‘Destroy// All Places’ began in San Francisco in 2012, and has since visited over 23 cities including Saint Petersburg, Rome, Cairo and Athens. Over 100 artists have participated in the project internationally.
Tawil's project for The Soap Factory, Destroy// Minneapolis, is a metaphor for renewal and resistance. The health of a city is dependent on change; a change that requires destruction as part of the life cycle.
