Introduction to performance by Brody Condon at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles.
Selected documentation from Brody Condon’s LevelFive performance at the Hammer Museum as part of the Machine Project Artist-in-Residence, September 4-5, 2010.
LevelFive is a participatory performance focused on critically exploring self actualization seminars from the 1970′s. The LevelFive performance will loosely follow the structure of early Large Group Awareness Training sessions like Erhard Seminars Training. LevelFive is not an actual self-actualization seminar, nor is it affiliated with any actual Large Group Awareness Training company or group. It is a experimental live role-playing event based on self-actualization seminars which originated in the Bay Area in the early 1970’s.
