My Diary: Secret Journey to Tipping Utopia // Yoshiko Chuma and The School of Hard Knocks

My Diary: Secret Journey to Tipping Utopia is based on twenty chapters that cross over within the frame of two hours. Musicians, dancers and designers interact, but not directly—a parallel to incidents of sound, text and action, a metaphor for endless continuous circles of life, fluxuating between utopia and war. While observing, the audience perceives the results of war—tipping utopia.

Artists-in-Residence: Jen Rosenblit, Gary Wilmes, and Simone Aughterlony

In this short residency Jen Rosenblit and Gary Wilmes are invited to begin research towards a performance project initiated by Simone Aughterlony, titled Remaining Strangers.

Дyми Moï (Dumy Moyi) // François Chaignaud

Straddling genres, genders, boundaries, and eras, Дyми Moï (Dumy Moyi) is an astonishing and intimate solo performance that breaks down the rituals of Western theater. François Chaignaud blends ritualistic and mystical songs and dances that simultaneously suggest styles from India, the Ukraine, the Philippines, or Sephardic cultures without explicitly referencing them.

Concrète Jungle // Dan Siegler

Concrète Jungle is a work of sound art performed live by composer Dan Siegler and special guests. The piece is inspired by and takes its title from musique concrète, an electroacoustic genre in which readymade sounds are employed in place of instrumentation. Featuring hundreds of intricately edited New York voices, Concrète Jungle highlights borough-specific accents, linguistic filler and word repetitions to form assembled sentences and musical grooves.

Odalisque // Peter Clough

Odalisque is a new performance by Peter Clough in which he reimagines the classical reclining nude as a gender non-conforming queer bondage submissive. Sculpture, projection, text, live performance, and music come together in an immersive environment that complicates power relations between Sub and Dom, viewer and performer, subject and object.
