Indigo Mind presents a dialogue between brother David Bufano and collaborator Sonsheree Giles, discussing the life and creative work of performance artist Lisa Bufano. In her visual and performing work, the dominating theme was the visceral experience of alienation, embodied by creatures, real and imagined. Moderated by Indigo Mind co-curator Cara Levine.
Lisa Louise Bufano (1972-2013) was an interdisciplinary artist and a performer, originally from Boston, Massachusetts, who often used prosthetics and props in her work. Lisa performed for audiences in Brazil, France, Austria, Croatia, Slovenia, Canada and in venues across the United States including The Kennedy Theater in Washington D.C., The Baryshnikov Arts Center, and Judson Memorial Church in NYC. She was a Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art recipient and had an ongoing association with the Makel School In Vienna Austria.
