Event Description: 

Contraception is a way of protecting the body, fraught with legal, emotional, and psychological history. What do we need that is often not allowed us? What do we bring into our bodies, into the country, across borders, late at night? These performances deal directly with contraception and historic and present-day contraband, items, supplies, objects forbidden, human rights surrounding a woman's body, touching on the female body, its needs, multiplicities, and experiences, as contraband itself, ported by the self perceived by others. Five artists perform performancy in the context of these considerations and via matrices of their own conceptual construction:

KATYA GROKHOVSKY

JENNA KLINE

AMY FINKBEINER

FLORENCE NASAR

HILARY SAND

$5-15 suggested donation goes all to the artists.

Beverages lovingly provided by Brooklyn Brewery.
