Game Play 2011 @ THE BRICK.
July 7 – 31, 2011

A Celebration of Video Game Performance Art

Now in its 3rd year, the video game performance festival continues in what Seth Schiesel of the New York Times called “the most ambitious effort I know of to fuse the techniques and live presentation of theater with the themes, structures and technology of interactive electronic entertainment.” See the media of stage and game collide in the most unexpected and surprising ways.

Game Play explores the collision of technology, theater, performance art, and video game culture by staging the collaborative work of performance and media artists across the digital spectrum.

HOSPITAL 2011 @ AXIS THEATER

Tickets & Info: http://www.axiscompany.org/mainstage.htm

Axis Company’s episodic play Hospital, about the interior life of a person in a terminal coma, is something of a signature for the company, which has produced a new installment of the drama nearly every year since 1997. Conceived, written and directed by Randy Sharp the show is a summer downtown phenomenon beloved for its balance of horror, humor, and weirdness. The company will present the 11th production in the series July 8 – August 20.

While most audience members return to see multiple, if not all four, parts of the summer’s production, each episode is a self-contained short play that can be seen in isolation. The brief premise film that begins each year’s production—depicting the event that brought on the coma—is shown at the beginning of each performance.

Hunter/Gatherer
July 9 – August, 7, 2011.
Opening reception July 9, 2011; 7 – 10pm.
The Booklyn Art Gallery is pleased to present Hunter/Gatherer, featuring works by Evan Robarts, Jason Kachadourian, Jessica Williams, Jon Bocksel and Scott Meyers.
Hunter/Gatherer
includes artists with the common practice of borrowing both aesthetic inspirations and found objects from their local surroundings. These artists accumulate visual, physical, and conceptual source material from everyday encounters and observations. They manipulate materials and appropriate techniques from discarded objects, sign-painting and murals, printed ephemera, and urban architecture. While each artist has their own unique approach to collecting and manipulating, their work evokes similar appreciations for the found and overlooked. With their work combined, Hunter/Gatherer creates a personal map of the city they share and the scenery they encounter. The viewer is confronted by these recognizable, yet often ignored images and encouraged to take a second look when walking down the street.

LA MACCHINA AMMAZZACATTIVI @ SPECTACLE
Sat, July 9: 5:00pm
 

Minor but pleasing Rossellini, set in a small town in Southern Italy thrown into a tizzy by the machinations of a mysterious old man. Saint or devil, he endows a camera with the power not merely to kill people, but to ferret out sources of wealth. Cue for a flurry of treachery and greed, all casually swept under the carpet in a final pirouette. The neo-realist techniques don’t always mix too comfortably with the fantasy, making it an Ealing comedy with an edifying bent.

… anticipates with remarkable prescience the conceits of Godard and others about photography in the 60’s” — Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

 

DAY IN PICTURES
is saxophonist and clarinetist Matt Bauder’’s latest band. Downbeat Magazine described the recent debut album as “modern jazz of a half-century past, with an instrumetal line-up and compositions that echoes classic efforts from Prestige, Columbia and Blue Note catalogs with nary a whiff of condescencion or dabbling.” With Matt Bauder – Tenor Saxophone, Clarinet; Justin Walter – Trumpet; Kris Davis – Piano; Jason Ajemian – Bass and Chad Taylor – Drums.

There will also be a short Q&A, hosted by Ken Deep, from Doctor Who Podshock,, an autograph session (see details below) and possibly a surprise or two – as I hope you have come to expect from our previous SOLD OUT Who York events!!!

PABLO MALAURIE, JULY 14th
CAFE ORWELL 7pm

Excited to announce this one. Pablo Malaurie’s voice is of the angels, and he’s come all the way from Argentina to play for you. It’s going to be beautiful, and glorious, and fun. Pablo has been widely praised for his fusion style (South American and Japanese in some cases), opened for Devandra Banhart and recently was a part of Catalin Mitulescu’s film “Loverboy.” He’s making the rounds in NY for the next couple days and we’re really pleased to have him.

Come help support not only our effort to see Volume II of The 22 Magazine in PRINT but also witness the  brainchild of Valerie Kuehne, i.e. Supercoda @ Cafe Orwell, the gorgeous spectacle that goes on nearly every  night (when does Valerie sleep?!?) and allows you to witness sounds that are otherworldly and stunning. Now, please watch/listen to the gorgeous song below.

PS- This show will be also be one of the first opportunities to be part of The 22’s Artist’s Open Forum. Have a question, concern, or problem as an artist? This is where we can help. We’ll be passing out signup sheets allowing you to let us know what is concerning you as artists, writers, and musicians and will address those concerns in our next meeting or on the blog. More info about what this all about at the show.

MEET THE ARTIST: Fruit and Babies Brooks Frederick.

Fruit and Babies
Brooks Frederick

Meet the artist Thursday, May 12 @ 7:00

This series of paintings is inspired by the rich food culture of New Orleans and south Louisiana where I grew up. The plastic babies I depict are known as ‘King Cake Babies.’ They are placed inside King Cakes, a cinnamon filled pastry-like cake eaten during Mardi Gras season. Tradition has it that whoever gets the baby throws the next party. Growing up, we kids made a game of finding the baby in the cake. more…

PPL FOCUS WRKSP at Anarchist Book Fair April 9th and 10th.

 

http://panoplylab.org/institute.html

We’ll be at the Anarchist Book Fair next weekend!

April 9, 11am-12:30pm
…FOCUS WORKSHOP for kids and their parents:

Institute_Institut FOCUS WORKSHOP #5: the self and its image
The Panoply Performance Laboratory

What is an individual? What is an “institution”? Using live-feed video that allows kids (and parents) to see themselves move onscreen in real time, we will explore the place where our selves are often asked to “feed” into structures such as school, work, and family. Kids/parents may play an interactive game that examines the mechanics of institutional engagement and invites subjective critical analysis of any current institutional relationships that the participants may have. Smaller kids may choose to play with their own image and their endlessly repeating, smaller and smaller images continuing off into the distance.

and for adults and teens, April 10, 4:15-5:45pm

FOCUS WORKSHOP on “Institutions.”
Part radical think tank, part focus group, part physical workshop, the Panoply Performance Laboratory invites participants to discuss their relationships with institutions, and focus on the role(s) that institutions play, both as groups of individuals and as emergent entities, through group exercises. Each participant will also have the opportunity to make an individual public statement on video for inclusion in PPL’s 2011 documentary opera, Institute_Institut (and will get a free ticket to PPL’s final performances.)

***********

Join PPL for a Focus Workshop in March and April, 2011!

Seeking opinions, experiences, and feedback from individuals, these workshops form a public co-creation aspect of the experimental opera project Institute_Institut.

NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED, ALL INDIVIDUALS OF ALL AGES, FROM ALL BACKGROUNDS INVITED!

(March workshops complete, THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ATTENDED!)

APRIL:

Saturday, April 9th
6-7:30pm (kids and parents)

Sunday, April 10
4:15pm-5:45pm (adults and teens)

both as part of the Anarchist Book Fair
at Judson Church

New York (A/C/E/F/M/B/D to W4 or R to 8th Ave)

JUST SHOW UP!

FREE

Between Dec. 2010 and June 2011, PPL is conducting a series of Focus Workshops, investigating cultural structures, interpersonal politics, daily conceptions of reality, and institutional ecologies through group discussion, performance work, and co-creation.

A Focus Workshop is part focus group and part thinktank. “Workshop” is used to note the performance-based perspective held by the workshop facilitators (the artists creating the project) and the performance research direction that some workshops take, depending on the interests of the participants.

Part I: Group Discussion. What are institutions? How do they function in your life? What are some of your experiences with them?

Part 2: Enactions, observations, and games.

All participants will receive a free ticket to the performances of Institute_Institut, in Fall 2011. The project is a staged documentary opera about authority, reality, institutionality, and sensibility. Issues and ideas discussed and researched through these Focus Workshops, as well as selected experiences, statements, and documentation from them (and many other forms of research) will largely form the libretto.

Desde el mes de diciembre 2010 a junio 2011, PPL ha estado realizando una serie de talleres informativos en Brooklyn, Manhattan y Queens. Los talleres investigan las estructuras culturales, las políticas mediativas, las construcciones diarias de la realidad, y las ecologías institucionales.

Se hace un llamado a personas de todas las edades y nacionalidades que quieran participar y contribuir con sus opiniones, experiencias e ideas en los talleres creativo-informativos. Los resultados serán incluidos como parte de colaboración en el proyecto Institute_Institut.

El Grupo de Enfoque funcionara también como fuente de inspiración y creación. En este sentido, “Taller” se refiere al aspecto performativo realizado por los artistas que facilitan la creación del proyecto y dirigen la investigación del mismo en base a los intereses de cada participante.

PRIMERA PARTE: Discusión en grupo.
– ¿Qué son las instituciones?
– ¿Cómo funcionan?
– ¿Cómo han sido tus experiencias con ellas?

SEGUNDA PARTE: Interpretaciones, observaciones y juegos.

Participantes recibirán una entrada gratis para la presentación de
Institute_Institut, en Otoño 2011. El proyecto se presentara como un documental montado al estilo de una ópera que tratará temas de autoridad, realidad, institucionalidad y sensibilidad. Las ideas y conceptos que fueron discutidos e investigados durante los talleres de enfoque de grupo, así como las experiencias, declaraciones y documentación de los participantes, serán incluidos como parte del libreto.
