An evening of short performance by:
Abigail Levine & Corey Fogel
Pasadena House Wives
Erica Magrey is a Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary artist working with video, performance, music, costume, sculpture, photography, and set design. Her work playfully examines the embodiment of personas in order to inhabit familiar and foreign, human and non-human characters, performing an investigative relationship with them. Once conjured, the persona’s fit may be surprising: like a deja vu glove, a seamless transition; or, bulkily, somewhere on the spectrum toward needs alteration. In videos and live performances, the audience bears witness to acts of transformation and embodiment; in interactive works, the user is granted agency to participate in transformative manipulations.
Amanda-Faye Jimenez is a Blaxican queer fat femme dyke writer and performer. She has performed at SORORITY at The Hammer Museum, the Radar Productions Queer Readings Series, and the McDonald’s in Silverlake next to her favorite gay bar. When she isn’t spilling her guts onstage, she can be found creating semi-relatable social media content @failureprincess and letting her dogs kiss her on the mouth, even though everyone says that’s some white people shit.
Abigail Levine is a New York-based choreographer and performer. Her works are rooted in dance and draw from visual and performance art. Corey Fogel is a drummer and artist whose practice is based in momentary encounters often involving the intersection of sounds, objects, textiles, foods. The two artists perform together for the first time on January 12
Pasadena House Wives met at a cocktail and craft party held every third Sunday of the month at their country club. They bonded over mutual frustrations with absent husbands and annoying children, their abilities to drink more cocktails then beads on a necklace, and hot secretive affairs with their children’s college friends. They started playing music together because both their therapists suggested alternative modes of mental and physical release as a way to maintain a healthy outlook on life.
