This module, SOLO, has previously been realized by Ari Benjamin Meyers in Hong Kong and Moscow. The Philadelphia version, created in the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic explores the individual's sense of isolation and powerlessness in the face of various underlying power structures in our society that visibly or invisibly determine our daily lives. Five locations in Philadelphia were selected, each representing a place of decision making, for which five international artists were asked to create a solo work to be performed by one of the location’s employees, responding to urgent questions of accessibility to knowledge, health, security, justice and power. The solos are performed by the employee during their regular working hours on site., The work is conceived as an intimate experience; only a small number of audience members at a time can get a glimpse of these otherwise unseen areas.
