We hosted our first two events this past weekend and boy did we have fun!
Although things were a bit haphazard after a great game of musical venue’s we were thrilled to see all of you in the same room.
We hope you enjoyed yourselves and that you will come visit the future events we will be hosting throughout the year (including an upcoming reading on May 15th with one of 2011’s “Discovery”/Boston Review Poetry Prize winners!)

In the meantime all the photos are up online and video (and very likely more photos) will be coming very soon!

5:30pm  Beautiful Bountiful Brooklyn Tasting Hour  |  7pm Potluck  |  8:30pm Slideshow
Location:  TBA  |  Dumbo, Brooklyn
Tickets Available Soon!

As Brooklyn is now synonymous with the seasonal, sustainable and local food movement, we are again offering a Beautiful Bountiful Brooklyn Tasting Hour, involving a number of restaurants, organizations and purveyors, as well as the beers of Brooklyn Brewery  As this is our only major potluck dinner in NYC this year, we’d like to invite people to bring dishes that have as many local, seasonal ingredients as possible.

Event Description

It brings me great pleasure to announce that Slideluck Potshow and The New York Photo Festival will be teaming up again to present Slideluck Potshow XVI.  Following last year’s collaboration which resulted in breaking The Guinness World Record for the Largest Potluck on Earth, we will be gathering once more in celebration of food, photography and community. 

The theme of this slideshow will be UPHEAVAL.  From the Middle East to middle America, we are living in a time characterized by great upheaval – in politics, nature, religion, art,climate, food, media, relationships, technology and education.  Whether for better or worse, we are looking for work that speaks to the remarkable change that surrounds us.
We are excited to bring in Whitney Johnson (also a Seattlite) who is taking over for her at The New Yorker (upheaval in and of itself) as our guest curator!  We are seeking creative and insightful projects about UPHEAVAL – and as usual, one half of the show will be open and not bound by any theme.

The 22 Show TONIGHT at 7pm.

22 show tonight at 7. We’re heading out to start hanging this beautiful work and warm up that old projector. Soon to arrive music and other fun.

Come have a coffee or drink and spend a relaxing Sunday eve with us, salon style.

Degenerate Art Ensemble: RED SHOES APRIL 3rd @ CPR.


At 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 3 Degenerate Art Ensemble will reprise their work performed at Watermill, but this time in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn at CPR – Center for Performance Research. Click HERE to read more about the event and purchase tickets.

THE WORK

Red Shoes On April 1 at The Watermill Center and April 3 at CPR – Center for Performance Research, Degenerate Art Ensemble (DAE) will present public performances of their work in progress titled Red Shoes. Red Shoes reimagines Hans Christian Andersen’s tale of a girl who is cursed to dance herself to death as a punishment for following her creative desires. DAE describes their work as ‘live music driven, comedy / horror, butoh inspired physical theatre.’ Their performance will utilize the musical talents of local East End musicians and will explore audience involvement in both the creation of soundscapes as well as choreography in portions of the piece. Their residency at Watermill is focused on the completion of one of the chapters of Red Shoes which is set to premiere at Seattle’s Frye Art Museum in May 2011. With limited opportunity to hold full rehearsals in the actual performance sites in Seattle, they will use the residency as a testing ground. Museum locations include a forest, a body of water, a field, and an indoor exhibition space – all spaces that exist on or nearby the Watermill grounds.

THE ARTISTS

Degenerate Art Ensemble Degenerate Art Ensemble is a performance company that creates original and adventurous productions using live music, physical theater and the visceral language of Butoh dance. Audio elements include live foley art, orchestras/chamber ensembles, bands, newly invented instruments, and electronics. Their creative approach is intensely collaborative and is in a constant state of invention and re-invention. Aesthetically extreme, influenced by punk, protest, cartoons, nightmares and fairy tales, DAE takes the viewer into otherworldly landscapes — full of compelling characters and music that doesn’t just accompany the action, but defines the mental state and reveals secrets to the audience that the characters will never know. DAE’s work is a tightly wound mechanism made up of triggers and cues that when released on stage aims to achieve a heightened sense of awareness one might find in a sacrificial rite. DAE has been presented by On The Boards (Seattle), REDCAT (L.A.), New Museum (N.Y.), Festival Alternativa (Prague), T.F.F. Festival (Germany) and many others in ten countries of Europe and North America. DAE has garnered acclaim with more than five hundred concerts and performances in ten countries. It has explored a diverse variety of formats, including music, dance, theater, film scoring, recording, sculpture, and painting in over one hundred original performative works and nine commercial music recordings. The group has received commissions from On the Boards, Commissioning Music USA, and the Aaron Copland Fund, and will be in residence at The Watermill Center a Laboratory of Performance. DAE is currently the subject of a large scale touring museum exhibition at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, Washington. www.degenerateartensemble.com
