MAY 2 - MAY 8 

 

MON MAY 2: DECOLONIZELA: PERFORMANCE: Song of Eurydice 4:30-7:30PM

Song of Eurydice re-envisions the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice as a call to marginalized artists, emphasizing a discourse between Eurydice (mecca vazie andrews) and the deity of the underworld, Persephone (Carolyn Pennypacker-Riggs). Picking up where the ancient tale left off, as Eurydice descends into the underworld and grapples with re-arranging established ways of thought and processing information. We invite you to drop-in to our informal rehearsal as we begin the      process of staging Song Of Eurydice.

MON MAY 2: DECOLONIZELA: CONVERSATION: The Hag 8-9:30PM

The Hag is suspicious of the myth of progress. We are inviting like-minded individuals, also wary of the propagation of expensive, exclusive “arts & culture initiatives,” to discuss their own qualms with top-down hierarchies at the institutional level, as well as to worship at the altar of fuck all. We will provide pizza & snacks in exchange for your ideas: how to publish, how to intervene, how to propose & push forward alternatives, how to realize our fantasies for decolonizing museums & galleries in Los Angeles, and beyond.

SUN APR 24: PERFORMANCE: Alex Romania: JERK 7:30PM, $10 

This physically vulnerable choreography frames the male body between violence and pleasure -- a microphone is bound to the body and swung from the pelvis evoking forms in the realm of BDSM, pornography, athletics, games, and  flagellation.    Through genital hypnosis and rigorous discomfort, this is a dance of (narcissistic) pleasure and (quiet) longing, (self) mutilation and (self) care. A dance to flatten and complexify the male body, to tenderize the flesh, to move beyond and to newly inhabit — a phallic solo to recompose the phallus.
