"Hospital Hallway is a continuation of themes explored in Johnson’s immersive installation House on Fire and performance Dancing with The Doctor, drawing on her grandmother’s experience as an unwitting participant in the infamous MK-ULTRA mind-controlling drug experiments of the 1950s ultimately linked to the CIA.

For this performance, the artist has designed an elaborate enclosed set that positions audiences above her, circling the stage like theatre-in-the-round. In the contained structure she will perform a riveting series of gestural movements forming an expressive dance sequence that is both physically grueling and emotionally charged." - plugin.org
