Consequences Have Consequences: PHASE ONE/calibration

Saturday, January 9th 2016

PHASE ONE/calibration
PPL as clinic
Saturday, January 9, 11-4 pm
Fire Drill will be conducting clinical trials with individual study participants. Make a 30-minute appointment by emailing emily.gastineau@gmail.com.

Consequences Have Consequences is a pseudo-empirical body of research focusing on specific, measurable outcomes of performance. What will it take for art to actually make people DO things? What kind of dance do we need to dance to make an audience member, e.g., burn down a Pizza Hut? The first case study in this series, which will be presented at Panoply Performance Laboratory in January 2016, begins with investigating physiological responses to performance, and develops strategies to undermine art’s obsession with its own weakness.

Fire Drill is the collaboration of Emily Gastineau and Billy Mullaney. Based in Minneapolis, they create performance works that challenge contemporary modes of spectatorship and examine the effects of capitalism on the body. Their work has been curated at venues in Minneapolis, St. Paul, New York City, Portland, San Francisco, Oakland and Chicago. As part of an emerging touring network, they have also curated evenings of performance featuring artists from New York, Portland, Oakland, Seattle, and the Twin Cities. www.fire-drill.org

*Postdance was established as a term and as a concept during the Brooklyn International Performance Art Festival in July 2013 with a series curated by Lindsey Drury by this name. "Postdance" refers to dance-after-dance, and dance-influenced performance art (and vice versa). This is the second exhibition in a series by this name at PPL, respectfully appropriating the title. Part I featured TYKE dance, Rene Kladzyk, and Sura Hertzberg. Part III will occur in April, 2014.
