FORENSICS OF THE FUTURE
DAY THREE: SITUATION
A very special edition of Performance Art Open Mic!
It’s that time again, the first Sunday of every month when performance artists and non-performance artists get together at Panoply Performance Laboratory and try to figure out what this thing is.
Visual Arts Performance? Body-Based Performance? What is this “performance” thing anyway? Who cares?
MC Matthew Silver cares. A lot. About you. And wants to see the work you do.
Beer for donations
NOTE: This event is meant for performance artists and people interested in defining/redefining performance art, not the “performing arts” in general (poetry, music, dance, etc), though all of these things may be included in a performance art piece, possibly at once.
The Bloodgates is an attempt to take some of the invisible elements of dance performance that make it so ‘magical’ in the moment – such as heat and breath and sweat and struggle – and make them visible, yet queered, troubled, abstracted, gruesome.
Lighting Design: The Vigilante Design Group
Sound Design: Erik Lawson
Dancers: Greta Hartenstein and Sophie Sotsky
CROWNWORC performance draws from practices of trance and possession that Kladzyck observed while on an artistic residency at a pilgrimage site in the Atlas Mountains (Morocco), and utilizes movement, sound, and dynamic costume to explore relationships of trust, weight and ethereality, intimacy among strangers, and plurality within.
(italics) This is Art? is an exploration of many aspects of art. It breaks open the relationship between the audience and the performer, it bridges the gap between art and stream of consciousness, it provides a diorama of solo choreography. This work is all at once challenging, humorous, self reflective, and debilitatingly human.
