Dynasty Handbag: Soggy Glasses, A Homo’s Odyssey

01/16/15 - 01/18/15

A feminist, comedic, fanny-packed, monomythic hero-journey. Using Homer’s Odyssey as both dramaturgical framework and toilet paper, Dynasty Handbag recasts the masculine allegory of returning home in a feminist context, on a voyage though her extremities, heart, mind, bowels, and artist colon-y.

luciana achugar: OTRO TEATRO: The Pleasure Project

01/13/15 - 01/17/15

The culmination of a three-month-long procession of public space interventions made throughout NYC and Biel/Bienne, Switzerland, that seek to viscerally activate the passive spectator. Anti-spectacular yet super-natural, it is less a performance and more of a practice of moving performance closer to ritual.

Tere O’Connor: Undersweet

01/12/15 - 01/14/15

In Undersweet, O’Connor works from the supposition that formalism might result from repressed sexual desire. The work is a choreographic meditation on how this paradox finds expression in dance, or possibly even generates it.
