Ghost Tongue Ruler premieres February 16 and 17. The work draws from studies in Qi Gong/CoreMotion, Body-Mind Centering, human physiology, and a wealth of religious, fictional and pop culture imagery. With collaborators/performers Emma Rose Brown, Samuel Hanson, Kirsten Schnittker and visual advisor Sofie Iommi, the performance investigates associations and significance of the heart. It explores ghosts, tongues and rulers; appearing and disappearing; being together and communicating across modalities.

This Friday Night, Lets get Oceanic!

Merfolk! Sea Mammals l! Water-Dwellers all! Emerge and share the spray with your kin on this mid-Taurus Half-Moon! Dress in your finest for feast and frolic, and bring your favorite Fishy friends. You will remember this night, just as you remember yourself, over and over again, for the very first time.

We'll be plumbing the depths of the sea to bring you an exotic array of multi talented performers, creating a shamanic night of oceanic music, dance, and live art for you.  

Carolyn Arnold, who just flew in from Oakland, will be playing an all original set of mermaid shanties and passion filled pumpkin-house art songs featuring soprano vocals with lyrics full of metaphor, human connection and fantasy.

Last Good Dance (Kirsten Schnittker, Amity Jones & Samuel Hanson) are staging a costumed, modern dance / performance piece called REVIVAL: a feartool tale of two, which takes aim at the collaborative friendship of its creators as they  begrudgingly face off with a backwoodsman hired-hand, still-tender adult disillusionment, preoccupying thoughts about nationalistic indoctrination, dance world social angst,  and ultimately, a  deep hopefulness about the magic they find in being together . 

Rubycon (Elijah Tucker, Eric Lane, & Ian Hafiz Turner) make music that morphs from tropical sci-fi to gothic futurism, over a bed of bouncy dance beats. Melodic falsetto vocals deliver witty lyrics, ranging from profane to profound. Their show is wild enough to make wallflowers dance, so get dressed to revel in your most oceanic finery!

De La Roca (Goldie Rush & Reachout) is a visionary live art & music duo featuring transparent silk painting, original songs, fashion design, activism and dope ass beats! De La Roca represents the strength and freedom of self expression through channels of beauty, humor and love; with recurrent themes of feminism, environmentalism, decolonization and indigenous unity.

DO YOUR WORST  - Guest Curated Series: Boom Bat Gesture Performance Group

7pm

Tickets

R E V I V A L : so you're thinking this? no actually, not at all, like, the opposite is a re-look at a "failed" collaboration that we embarked on during the summer of 2014. As collaborators, we were unsteady; as makers, we were all over the place.  We had ten different dances that we wanted to make, and we couldn't tear them apart. We would start a new one every week. It was, you could say, the worst. So, what happens when we attempt to recover the ideas and dynamics we abandoned three years ago? Have we changed? Has the work changed? Can we understand what we were trying to explain? Can we do it better?

AMITY JONES and KIRSTEN SCHNITTKER are dancers who also like to make things, often together. They met in NYC while working on a project with a canary torsi two years after college. It’s important to know that Amity is from the Oregon Coast and Kirsten is from the Colorado foothills. They have danced in each others’ work in NYC and Newport, OR – Kirsten’s Yours And Our Devices (2015) and New Performer (2017) and Amity’s Quite on Hold (2016).
