In Performance: Okwui Okpokwasili – Poor People’s TV Room (Out There Festival)

Poor People’s TV Room Okwui Okpokwasili Walker Art Center (Out There Festival) As in 2014’s Bronx Gothic, Okwui Okpokwasili is in motion before the audience enters the space. In fact, all four performers (Okpokwasili, Thuli Dumakude, Katrina Reid, and Nehemoyia Young) are already present and in motion. A large sheet of plastic stretches across the stage, separating Okpokwasili from the rest of the group, and blurring her image, as if she is a ghost or a spirit. Unseen forces are a recurring theme in this work. Though Okpokwasili names two events from Nigeria’s history as influences (The Women’s War of 1929, and the Bring Back Our Girls movement sparked in response to mass kidnappings), this source material is not addressed directly or literally. The four women seem to spin through ti...

In Performance: Faye Driscoll – Thank You For Coming: Play (Out There Festival)

Thank You For Coming: Play Faye Driscoll Walker Art Center (Out There Festival) “The book of the show is not yet written,” Faye Driscoll intones as she welcomes a small group of audience members onto the stage. The show’s interactive opening sequence has the feel of a ritual: the performers sit chanting in a clean, gallery-esque space, surrounded by neatly-arrayed props and costumes. Audience members are invited to stand around an altar-like table and to contribute a word or two to be used later in the performance. Since this operation, completed in small groups, takes a not insignificant amount of time, spectators can relax into the cycle of chanting and watch the precise, repetitive tableaux created by performers as they move from their separate squares to pose at the front of the stage....

In Performance: Catch Coil III (COIL)

Co-presented with The Invisible Dog Art Center Jan 15 – 7pm at The Invisible Dog Art Center 51 Bergen Street, Brooklyn Eleven acts participated in a special COIL edition of the CATCH series at The Invisible Dog. The series – as described by curators Andrew Dinwiddie, Jeff Larson & Caleb Hammons – is an “Obie award-winning, itinerant, rough and ready series of performance events that whirls through Brooklyn every month or two”. Performances came from groups like Aorta Films who make “lusty opulent ethical fuckery.” Aorta Films’ “Porn Theory 3 (manifesto in 10 parts)” is a thoughtful meditation on sex and queerness. Images of naked bodies of all shapes, sizes, color, and gender copulating played while the group read it’s inspira...

Up Coming: Simone Aughterlony & Jen Rosenblit -Everything Fits In The Room (1.19-1.22.17 Berlin)

Aughterlony and Rosenblit navigate current forms of feminist politics ­beyond manifestos. Unpacking the phenomenology of utopias solicits the fear that all things will not fit in the imagined path. A free-standing wall sits in the middle of the room offering possibilities to adjust, fix and reattach materials. Crushed nutmeg and pine needles entice the senses. Rhythmic sorcery drives the effort to organize the ingredients, despite their un-governability. Is this a cooking show or a construction site? The room offers an expanded horizon, encouraging disruptive practices by way of leaks and cracks inside architectures for gathering. Thu 19.01.2017, 20:00 / District Berlin  TICKETS/Calendar Fri 20.01.2017, 20:00 / District Berlin  TICKETS/Calendar Sat 21.01.2017, 20:00 / District Berlin  TICK...

In Performance: M.Lamar – Funeral Doom Spiritual (Prototype Festival)

M.LAMAR – FUNERAL DOOM SPIRITUAL Friday January 13, 7pm Saturday January 14, 7pm + 10pm National Sawdust 80 North 6th Street Brooklyn, NY 11249 Funeral Doom Spiritual starts in discord. Strings play wildly and we hear the drone of endless bombs. Time slows as M.Lamar glides to his place at the keys. You crave for the strings and bombs to stop. Duration and intensity are powerful tools in M. Lamar, Hunter Hunt-Hendrix, and Tucker Culbertson’s exploration of a past future. Set in 2117, M.Lamar explores centuries of black death via music inspired by the negro spirituals. The restlessness of the music exposes a bleak future that looks so much like our past that you think you’re in a fever dream. Death is rest in this future. I suspect that this sentiment would also hold true ...

In Performance: Matt Marks and Paul Peers, Mata Hari (PROTOTYPE)

Matt Marks and Paul Peers Mata Hari January 5-7 and 11-14 at 7pm January 8 at 2pm PROTOTYPE HERE Arts Center 145 6th Ave Mata Hari tells the story of historical figure Mata Hari, a dancer/courtesan who was executed by the French during WWI for being a German spy. When we first see Mata Hari, she is decked in jewels and a beautiful gown—a dancer in full glory. But the glory lasts only a moment, as she is soon surrounded by five male soldiers who take everything away from her save a slip. She spends the rest of the opera exposed, in this slip, in a prison cell, talking to the nun who is her keeper and the captain who is set on sending her to her death. Through these exchanges and the recreations of episodes in her life that bloom from them, we learn about all of her exploits, from being abus...

In Performance: Nicola Gunn, Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster (COIL 2017)

  Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster (COIL 2017) Nicola Gunn Jan 11 – 8:30pm Jan 12 – 8:30pm Jan 13 – 7:30pm Jan 14 – 5pm The Ellen Stewart Theatre @ LaMaMa – 66 East 4th Street, NY NY Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster is Australian performer Nicola Gunn’s subversively funny moral quandry-turned-solo show. At the outset, Gunn recounts directly to us a true story: once in the not-too-distant past, while running alongside a canal in Belgium, she came upon a man throwing rocks at a sitting duck. Paralyzed by the scene, she asked herself, what should a good person do? Like any question of right and wrong, Gunn’s work is deceptively simple. Bit by bit, she carefully asks us to consider each aspect of this situation: she’s a woman, he’s a man; she’s in a foreign country, he may be ...
