GILLIAN CHADSEY & IVAN TALIJANCIC/WAXFACTORY
SPELL FOR FAINTING#2

A structured improvisational piece for a performer and a DJ using disparate textual sources, 25 musical selections and sounds, and over 50 objects as an investigation in the chaos of creation. Phase 1: Objects – curious ephemera or emblems of a lingering encounter?

EVAN JOHNSON AND CHIP RODGERS
SOUL TRAVEL WORKSHOP

Evan and Chip are attempting to resurrect their past lives. The two best friends document their findings as they visit psychics, meditate, hold séances, undergo hypnotherapy and psychoanalysis, and learn just as much about their own messed-up relationship as the ones they might have had.

THINGNY
WHISPER PIECE

Experimental music collective thingNY’s new set of operatic scenes opens with a soundscape of sirens, speech and singing, experienced from different perspectives depending on your seat and your time in the space. The scene depicts stories and philosophies from a community about to be ravaged by an approaching storm.

BOOM BAT GESTURE PERFORMANCE GROUP
ZOOM THOUSAND TIME

In Zoom Thousand Time, BOOM BAT GESTURE applies the visual concept of an infinite zoom to time-based performance. Using a live 10 minute improvisation as source, BBG will zoom into/strech out one minute of each previous piece for all ensuing presentations, reducing the source material by 90% each time, culminating in a final performance using only the material that occurred in 3/5 of a second of the original source. Using this hyper-minimalist, ever-shrinking palette, they will navigate forms, existing and invented, in an effort to find freedom and expression under intense limitations.
