Andros Zins-Browne presents SurrEndErr, a performance of voice, movement, and text that explores the merits of letting go. Conjuring acts of resistance and resilience, attempts at holding on to and persevering through, the performance turns to surrender as an alternate beginning, a forceful physical practice and a soft political praxis, a giving up that is not a giving in. Reckoning and reconnecting with loss as an attribute and a gift, SurrEndErr is a ceremony of offerings, a collection of sacrifices, a history of forfeits, summoning what is gained through acts of giving away.
