Postponed – Exponential Festival: thingNY @The Brick

Date: January 18, 2024
Time: 8:00 pm

The Exponential Festival & The Brick present
Natural Studies
by thingNY
January 18-20, 2024

thingNY returns to the Brick with a double bill made up of Joseph White’s You Against Nature and their latest collectively written opus, Mouthful.

You Against Nature is the first opera from White and is based on the French decadent classic, Against Nature. It is a tale of modern day self-isolation, attempts at life-hacking, and nihilistic indulgence taken to extraordinary lengths.

Mouthful is situated in the orbit of a large communal table and explores ancestry, lineage, and linguistic transmission through food and digestion, through blood, and through community and family structures.

George Lewis // International Contemporary Ensemble // Park Avenue Armory

Date: December 18, 2023
Time: 7:00 pm


Park Avenue Armory
643 Park Avenue, NYC

On the first half of the program, the International Contemporary Ensemble will present the US premiere of George Lewis’s Blombos Workshop (2020) for piano, which engages an overarching concern of Jamaican critical theorist Sylvia Wynter—the promise and potential of the human. This is followed by his Assemblage (2013) for nonet, which presents the sounds of contingency, heterogeneity, nonlinearity, emergence, and bricolage.
