Amir Hall is a son, brother, friend, writer and performance artist currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in English at Amherst College.
Amir at an early age found himself grateful for how other people, his parents, his brother and his teachers, for example, buttressed his upbringing. He wondered at the reciprocal effects people had on each other and how those effects resonated. He asked, “what do we carry with us when we receive a kindness?” and, “where in our body do we hold hurt when inflicted upon us?”
These questions have led him to explore the self in his writing and performance work as a permeable membrane by considering how we construct ourselves and our stories with each other, through multiple frames of seeing and memory. An obsession with Love emerges in his work as the substance that opens and as the creative essence, much like storytelling, that renders a person immortal.
