Performer Profile: Polynomials


Near Strangers

I almost went to bed

without remembering

the four white violets

I put in the button-hole

of your green sweater

and how i kissed you then

and you kissed me

shy as though I’d

never been your lover

– L. Cohen

Polynomialsis the conduit for the creative projects of Karissa Fyrrar and her variables. For Seasonal Activities, she will be joined by long-time musical partner Math Rosen and movement collaborators Jen Hum and Sarah Reid.


Fyrrar is inspired by the human condition, the perils of everyday life, and the things our hands and faces do in the moments we stop thinking about them.
