Refusal In Place, a Quarantine series consists of several live performance collaborations with other artists in isolation. We used varying social media platforms to document our performances together while the stay-at-home order is in affect during the global pandemic. While deaths due to Covid-19 in the United States have been skyrocketing above every other country, our government leaders rush to reopen business-as-usual for the sake of the economy. This series presents an antithesis to the logic of Capitalist productivity and "hustle culture".
