Torino:Margolis smashes through physical and psychological barriers separating one body from another using invasive electronics and biomedical tools. They explore idea that the sense of self is transient, elusive and modular by playing with the notion of control and free will. Jenny has a BA in Theatre from James Madison University and a Masters of Science from New York University. Ben Margolis has a BFA from the School of Visual Arts, an MD from Albert Einstein College of Medicine and completed residencies in neurology and psychiatry at Brown University. Ben and Jenny have been doing interactive, electronics-based performances together since 2001. You can read more about them at jennytorino@mac.com.
