Ten artists, five per car. Small bundles of supplies and some instruments. What did you forget to bring that you can retrieve where you are now? Vehicles, metaphors, motives, motion, bodies inside bodies. How long does the trip take when you're hungry? Taco Bell or Pizza Hut? From where to where? How long does the trip take? Until, I mean, wait, how long does the trip take when you swallow until you can't? Have you been here before? Have you gone the distance? This is the middle of the road. This is the lane. Try not to break down in the tunnel. Bridge between something and something. This is my house. No spitting in the car. 

A 3 day performance event between brooklyn, pittsburgh, and many a flying J and rest area en route, featuring:

Jill Flanagan (Forced into Femininity) : Isn’t it just like a woman to be mischevious, impetuos and impulsive, to want the freedom to what she likes? And isn’t it like a woman to be mysterious, impenetrable, to have depths in which we plunge in vain in search of some lost part of ourselves? Jill Flanagan thinks so, and she’s here to spread her twisted hysterical ideology with a little soft shoe routine and some jazz standards.

Valerie Kuehne : accross the country, dopamine filling stations are popping up like deerticks. Watch your childhood melt in front of your eyes and change your perception in the warmth of a truck stop bathroom. There is no way to prepare yourself for what is happening right now.

POST-DANCE SYMPOSIUM, NYC 2016
November 17-20

Conceiving of bodilies both individuated and social as theoretical and practical resources, we collectively and individually approach ways in which culture be (re)claimed, (re)made, (re)formed, and (re)paired by humyns.

DEADLINE FOR PAPERS/SCORES/TEXTS (for simultaneous online publication: November 15, response texts/papers/scores, November 30)

***SYMPOSIUM SCHEDULE: ALL OPEN TO THE PUBLIC***

THURSDAY, NOV 17: DEPART

7pm-11pm: Performances by Mariana Valencia, Zavé Martohardjono, Ni’Ja Whitson, Shawn Escarciga
Matters: appropriation/sampling/mash-up/remix/etc: de-identification, ritual, rights/rites, cultural tradition + queer futurism
Problems: To whom, to what, and how does this body belong? How do we depart without detaching? How are we located in time and timing locating? How are we contextually situated and situating contexts? How are we culturally “framed” and framing “our own culture?”

FRIDAY, NOV 18: DECAY

6pm: warm-ups and public improvisation session
8pm-11pm: Performances by Lorene Bouboushian, Alex Romania, Kaia Gilje, QUEEFCORE
Matters: disgust/abject/substances and mess/emotional expression, hardcore existentialism and disciplinary decay, aesthetics, play, and practical methods for anti-dance-y dance
Problems: What becomes between improvisation and proposition? How do we communicate without using dominant codes and languages? How are we concrete and abstract, affected and affecting, able and unable?

SATURDAY, NOV 19: DESIRE/DESIGN

3pm-7pm: DESIRE
Matters: academia, institutions, and "success," alter-systems, space and species, mutualism, money and madness, desire and survival, de-materializing realities and re-modeling economies of attention
Problems: What are the pros and cons of capitulation, participation, and subjection? How are we navigating our motivations and emotions? How do we interface with and de-face power paradigms and hegemonic orders for value and survival?

3pm: panel discussion with Rebecca Ferrell, Jumatatu Poe, Andre Lepecki, Clarinda Mac Low, artists from the other days. 

7pm: warm-ups and physical shake-outs

8pm-11pm: DESIGN
Performances/Presentations by: Jessica Pretty, Charlie Maybee, Rebecca Ferrell, lo bil, Alexander D'Augostino and Noelle Tolbert
Matters: “choreography” and choreographed/choreographing bodilies, stagings and social arrangements, spectators/witnesses/audiences vs. participants vs. makers (role-playing), vessels, vehicles, and events
Problems: For whom do we make “dance” as such and why? What are the ethics of participatory modes? How do we make decisions and dare to anticipate, practice, and enforce con-sequences?

SUNDAY, NOV 20: DEMAND

4pm: Post-dance: A Primer 
Presented by: Lindsey Drury and No Collective (You Nakai, et al.)
Matters: “post-dance”
Problems: Is the term “post” a mere prefix to indicate we are over it? What is this “it” we are supposed to be over with? If we are over dance, why do we still cling to that old name? Wouldn’t “post-it” be a better name? And even if we stick to dance, can’t we do better than resorting yet again to the facile formula of [dance + x (e.g. performance art, discourse, theory, etc)] or [dance - x (e.g. choreography, dancer, etc)]? Do we even know what we seek to leave behind? What is a body? What is movement? What if “post” was a verb or a noun? Where do we go from here, where have we been, and who is this “we” that we all talk about? 

5pm: Presentation by yon Tande

7pm-11pm: Performances and presentations by Ilona Bito, LJ Leach, Brandon Fisette, yon Tande, Amanda Hunt
Matters: objectlessness/deontology, spectacle vs. situation, mindbody, theory and authority, anthrocenticity, and auto-ethnography
Problems: How are the affects and consequences of our movements? Who are we in time and context and how do our practices create, demand, and inform change? What are the demands of this demonstration, this public assembly, this strike against daily ongoing performativity?

Organized by Leili Huzaibah, Esther Neff, Rebecca Ferrell, Lindsey Drury, and participants.

Austerity is a valuation schema that devalues humans, urging us to work harder and harder to justify our value to corporations and institutions as they withhold more and more resources. While austerity is a formal, conservative political and economic manoeuvre, withholding is also an act of devaluation, used as an abusive emotional and psychological tactic or emergent as a symptom of waning respect.

How do we show respect and value each other? What do we give each other? What do we take? How are we ourselves and not ourselves? How are we others? Critical surveys, homages, interpretations, and projections in the forms of performances.

This PERFORMANCY FORUM will perform resistance to austerity, to withholding, and the systematic devaluing of creative labor: INDULGE (IN) EACH OTHER!
