TUESDAY MAY 21 – ALTERNATE / SHELTER – MOVEMENT RESEARCH FESTIVAL SPRING 2013
Curated by Vanessa Anspaugh, Hilary Clark, Mina Nishimura and Antonio Ramos
6 – 7PM: Precarious Homes: A Conversation on Precarity and Performance with Katherine Brewer Ball – FREE
Performance and the performing body have a unique relationship to life in later capitalism. In post-Fordist economies characterized by precariousness — what Julia Bryan-Wilson calls “a pervasively unpredictable terrain of employment” — the language of performance is commonly used to describe affective and immaterial labor that does not generate an end product. So how might we understand the economics of performance? What are the stages, platforms, and structures that support dance and other “live” performances? This conversation-and-cocktails event is an attempt to discuss the economics of home, of stages, and the unique place of the performing and precarious bodies that inhabit them.
7:30PM: Welcome to the Alternate Shelter!
House warming and house sweating performances by Erin Markey, Jen Rosenblit, Greg Zuccolo $10 (donation based bar included)
