In the lounge TOLERANCE Erika Boudreau-Barbee
About This Show
This performance-art game focuses on crises in U.S. politics, aiming to draw attention to how desensitized we’ve become to events that should have an impact on us. The participants, each following news sources on Twitter, will read tweets about political tolerance/intolerance. We will toast and drink a shot glass full of beer with every tweet!
