A discursive performance + art project focusing on subjects of place, objecthood, memory, archive and the live body.
Communicating through distance about proximity.

    A discursive performance and art project housed widely in the minds of Rory Murphy and Stephanie Acosta, NO ONE IS ANYWHERE.  Focusing on subjects of place, object, memory, archive and the living, Murphy and Acosta communicate through distance about proximity.  

    Formerly of Chicago’s the Anatomy Collective, the artists engage an extensive understanding of performance and ensemble building along with varied formal and experimental forms and technologies to create environments for, and interventions within, the viewer.  

    Questioning ideas of space and place, where there ends and we begin.
