MeMoSa: Ultimate Catharsis 1

Student Artist-in-Residence Lily Selthofner presents: Ultimate Catharsis 1

Friday, March 29th  |  7:00pm

Saturday, March 30th  |  7:00pm

Ultimate Catharsis 1 is an interdisciplinary, multimedia experimental performance art piece. UC1’s dynamic cast of dancers, actors, and musicians — including both students and non-student collaborators — leads the viewer through a reclamation of Justice and Truth. Amidst the sublime of love, divinity, and awareness, UC1 holds accountable the intersections of institutional and relational violence.

Doors open at 6:45PM and MeMoSa begins at 7:00PM

Capacity in the lab is capped at 40 audience members. Attendees who have RSVP’d before the event will have priority, and admission will be determined on a first come first serve basis on arrival. If you RSVP before the event but you arrive late, we reserve the right to give your spot to someone on the waitlist. 

Attendees who have not RSVP’d will be put on a standby waitlist if they arrive in-person before the event.



Lily Selthofner (she/they) is a senior at Columbia College studying Dance and Anthropology. As an interdisciplinary artist, Lily works primarily within dance, film, and visual arts. Her work seeks to embody the reciprocal nature of perception by cultivating authenticity and receptivity and by evoking connective aspects of sentience such as immersion, empowerment, empathy, and infinity through collaborative, explorative processes. Lily’s work as a Student Artist-in-Residence will center the healing potentials of creative expression by fostering space for multiplicitous, interdimensional, and/both perspectives. Further, their process will explore the mysteries and unimaginable horizons in the intersubjective paradox between essence and ritual.
