Hudson's TSL presents “Blocks of Sensation”

HUDSON—Time and Space Limited, 434 Columbia Street, presents a special event performance of “Blocks of Sensation,” a one-woman performance written and performed by Kim Barke.

Under the scalpel gaze of Barke, poet and former scientist who studied addiction, “Blocks of Sensation” bushwhacks into the tragic irony of queer mothering an adult addict 27 years after leaving the lab. This raw elegy, directed by Linda Mussmann, is an unflinching journey into the heart of human behavior and the meaning of truth.

Barke is a poet, playwright and former scientist who lives near Hudson. This is her first produced show as a playwright and as a performer. In the 1990s, Barke’s research on opioid addiction was funded by two grants from the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA). More recently, she has received nine Cannes Lions (including a Glass Lion for change), and awards from The Clios, The One Show, and D&AD among others for her projects “The Call” and “Skindeep,” public health campaigns created to create awareness on issues of racial bias in health care and race-based traumatic stress. She is dedicated to raising awareness and affecting change at the intersection of health and social justice.

Tickets are $12.50 for TSL members and $15 general admission. To get tickets call 518 822-8100 or go to
