Perpetual Piñata Parlour

Perpetual Piñata Parlour, with Flux Factory, was a four-day carnival about bureaucracy, capitalism, and language barriers presented in St. Petersburg, Russia for Art Prospect Festival in 2015. Over four days, visitors to the festival were guided by miming facilitators through a series of lost-in-translation American and Russian folk games, accumulating points of unclear value before participating in a collective piñata-breaking ceremony. This project was commissioned by CEC ArtsLink
