Nothing: a pregnant emptiness before the strike, a bowl waiting to be filled by something else, Alvin Lucier? this is your brain on ______, illness and invalids, oblivion, everything that exists in the buzzing of generators in the room. “The millions of buzzing, humming anythings and huge buzzings and hummings of nothings” (Fredlund and Gilje).
In the early evening hours (around 6-7:30) Lorene Bouboushian and Kaia Gilje will perform the room (PPL space really is just a room), context, situation: the nothingness of what is already there. Their work comes from the desire to deconstruct a performance situation, throwing the room, the performance setting, and the social milieu into relief. What has propelled us here speaks loudest and says nothing at all. At 7:45pm we will begin performances by Tatyana, Li, Adjua, and Luke, continuing until 11pm.
$5-15 suggested "pay-what-you-can" donations go directly to the artists.
