RTS is excited to welcome our March/April artist in residence, Cassie Thornton.
It is a normal day, everyone is bored, ev- erything good seems impossible. A small white woman has a tantrum in your school’s cafeteria about her for-pro t education at a “public institution,” the way her school has colonized the city and her zero-sum future of shallow work, unpayable debt and con- stant eviction. It is Cassie Thornton, or one of her agents. Cassie produces perversely hard-hitting social situations that result in unexpected transformations on the streets, in workplaces, and at schools. Thornton stops time to summon up the unknown unknowns that reside in the silences between people, institutions, and economies. Cassie Thornton is a feminist economist and artist who uses dance, writing, visual art, hypnosis, experimental research, tours and radio to reveal debt as a source of solidarity.
