Karen Adelman will sing a few of her most recent “Focus” meditations, which are excerpts from an experimental sci-fi opera/novel in progress about a dispersed resistance in a world suffused with noise.┬áMaura Brewer will give a short lecture that considers questions of identification, feminism, and agency relative to an actress’s recent roles in Zero Dark 30 and Interstellar.┬áDanielle Dean will screen a new video, which combines hand drawn animation and shot footage using a Nike sneaker as subject.┬áBrian Getnick will present a short choreographic fragment in the character of the old magician, part of his larger research project on how a character’s affect, movement, and sound can become the score for a dance.┬áDavid Gilbert will perform a puppet show, with puppets that are made from old clothes, yarn and construction paper. The show blends poetry and comedy.┬áJules Gimbrone will perform “Trio” which will be a sculptural and live performance that discusses sound practice as queer, a broken guitar being tuned, and water being dripped from a wet t-shirt into a pot.┬áAnn Hirsch will do something weird that will probably make you feel uncomfortable.┬áPaul Pescador will screen a video and read dialogue revolving around dance and intimacy at a grocery store.
