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.

-----about the artists----

 

Jenna Kline: "
Beatrice

 

In the jewish tradition, a Yahrzeit Candle is burned for 24 hours to commemorate a death.  Yahrzeit in Yiddish means, “time of year”.  I'm expanding on this tradition by partaking in a physical ritual to honor the departed.

In this piece, I will transform into a physical memorial to honor my grandmother, Beatrice Klein.  Beatrice was a semi-traditional Jewish grandma who loved getting her hair and nails done.  She hated cooking,  loved to read and always had corn muffins in stock.   Her sass was unparalleled.

She was an avid shopper and had no shortage of brightly colored blouses, chambre tops and dungaree bottoms.  When she passed away my parents were left with the daunting task of sorting through her personal belongings.  Costume jewelry, including broaches, clip on earring and loose crystals (my grandpa used to make jewelry).  Stockings and tights that were so ancient and corroded that they crumbled to the touch (still in the their original packaging). Canvas shoes, ceramic cats and close to 100 camisoles.  Ivory, black, red, royal blue, floral, lace, sheer and all delicate and feminine.  For some reason, they appealed to me and I took most of them and the remainder was donated.  I rarely wore them, but could never part with them.  (I'm a collector).

I will create a sculptural and spoken narrative by weaving together fragments of memories, photos, her personal items and Entenmann's corn muffins.  By surrounding myself with her essence, I will become a spirit objet, a totem, a physical embodiment of her spirit.

I will invite the audience to participate and also remember loved ones who are no longer with us.
"

 

Francheska Alcantara: "I am interested in investigating memories of my childhood through objects/things that were part of my household or that I saw my grandmother using all the time. I guess it is a response to the physical state of being, a connection to “the real” world and introspection into the innate knowledge of my body."
