Steve Of Tomorrow at The Collapsable Hole March 16-April 1, 2017 @ 8pm

STEVE OF TOMORROW March 16 – April 1, 2017 @8pm The Collapsable Hole 55 Bethune Street, NYC Tickets are $20 ($15 for students/seniors) In Commander/Ramirez’s video-puppetry performance, STEVE OF TOMORROW, a couchsurfing time traveler Steve appears at a crammed apartment shared by sci-fi blogger Ralph and his partner Scott. Steve lands in the middle of a media frenzy surrounding a corporate-produced hurricane. What ensues is a split-screen dark comedy about miscommunication in the age of pervasive media and a democracy interrupted by a flurry of pop-up windows. “I wanted to make a show about how every step into the future seems to divide us, especially now that anxiety has taken a hold on the nation. I want to tell this bleak story using puppets, of course,” says Commander...

In Performance: Jen Rosenblit & Geo Wyeth – Swivel Spot (The Kitchen)

A companion piece to Rosenblit’s Clap Hands, which ran most recently at the 2017 American Realness festival, Swivel Spot continues Rosenblit’s line of performative inquiry into pairing and relationships, and marks a new collaboration between Rosenblit and music/performance/installation artist Geo Wyeth. Comprised of gently accumulating scored movement punctuated by surprising turns of music and interaction, Swivel Spot watches Rosenblit and Wyeth fumble blindfolded through a motley landscape of objects and sound, groping for grounding, and for one another. Alexia Welch, the “supportive performer” who also provided her gentle care for Clap Hands, trails Rosenblit and Wyeth with plastic wrap, methodically pinning a city of objects to the gallery floor at The Kitchen. Welch’s methodical atten...

Altofest was born to GIVE RISE to a community that generates a critical thinking, that is constantly on the alert regarding every attempt of imposing a depersonalized cultural proposal. A community that is able to recognize culture as a primary good, as a daily need. Altofest tries to insert a process athwart the several social elements of the urban fabric, putting them into dialogue. The connection is given by the foreign, external gaze, expressing itself in the plurality of artistic languages that are hosted in the festival....

In Performance: Philippe Quesne/Vivarium Studio – La Melancolie des Dragons (Out There Festival)

La Melancolie des Dragons Philippe Quesne/Vivarium Studio Walker Art Center A group of long-haired metalheads sits in a stalled vintage Citroën in a wintery forest. They fiddle with the car radio, share snacks, and chat under cover of blasting music. Then arrives their friend Isabelle, a wise Snow White figure to the metalheads’ seven dwarves. After determining (through inspection and tinkering) that their Citroën won’t be going anywhere tonight, she asks the stranded metalheads to pass the time by demonstrating the attractions of the amusement park they are developing. Here, Philippe Quesne’s penchant for using simple tools to create surreal images shines. The would-be amusement park creators display each attraction for Isabelle, often calling her away from the previous one like a child e...

Interview with Jen Rosenblit: Performing Process and Problematics

Jen Rosenblit has been making performance in New York City since 2005. Her Bessie Award-winning work questions intimacy inside of problematic spaces, uniting choreographies, text, and design towards philosophical quandaries. Her work has been commissioned by The Kitchen, New York Live Arts, Danspace, and others, and she has been a resident artist with Movement Research, LMCC, and others.
