Let’s be honest: performance art can feel pretty esoteric. With this weekend’s One Hour Without Understanding

artist-in-residence, all of the above -- thankfully with a welcome dose of humor.
Ahead of the performance happening at makeshift art space Bazaar Compatible
this Saturday, we asked Marri to clear up questions about incomprehensibility, complexity and confusion.
