Join us for LEARNING CURVES #1--a screening of performance videos followed by a group discussion about learning, teaching, doing, and forgetting performance.
Texas-based artist Heather Warren-Crow has curated a video-conversation of short works by her, former students (currently, NY-based artists) Dayna Moses and Kate Brandt, and compatriot Anya Liftig.
After the screening, we invite the audience to talk about performance:
Where, how, and why do we learn to perform? How has the Internet changed the way we find and kill our historical idols? We encourage you to add your own text to a list of art "teachers" that will later be printed on custom candy as part of Heather's project Eat Your Idle.
