PS122 Hosts "Conversations with Culture: Contemporary Performance and the Multiverse" [01 Dec 2009|04:44pm]

ps122
East Village institution PS122 hosts "Conversations With Culture: Contemporary Performance and the Multiverse"

SPECIAL EVENT
FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
Conversations with Culture

“Contemporary Performance and the Multiverse”

December 9th at 7pm
Location: Sony Wonder Technology Lab, 550 Madison Avenue (at 56th Street)


On December 9th, PS122 will host the second discussion in its new Conversations with Culture series, “Contemporary Performance and the Multiverse.” The conversation uses as its launching pad PS122 artists Lisa D’Amour and Katie Pearl’s workTerrible Things, a new collaborative work exploring the multiverse though personal narrative, particle physics, and a shifting “set” of 600 marshmallows that stand in for particles, potential energy, and the sub-atomic realm. Panelists will discuss the role and ramifications of contemporary performance as a mode of articulating scientific theory and expressing our human experience of the laws and mysteries of the physical universe.These events are free and open to the public and endeavor to reinsert performance into the cultural, economic, and environmental debates coursing through contemporary society, from which it has recently largely been excluded.

December 9th Participants Include
David Z. Albert, Frederick E. Woodbridge Professor of Philosophy at Columbia University, Author of Quantum Mechanics and Experience and Time and Chance

Lisa D’Amour and Katie Pearl, co-creators of Terrible Things, which premieres at PS122 on December 4th.

DJ Spooky, creator of Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica playing at BAM Dec 2-5

Brian Schwartz, Director of the Science & The Arts program at the CUNY Graduate Center (http://web.gc.cuny.edu/sciart/) and 2009 winner of the Andrew W. Gemant Award, given annually by the American Institute of Physics to recognize significant contributions to the cultural, artistic, or humanistic dimension of physics.

Shave your head for art! [24 Feb 2008|04:14pm]

goodchemical
I am looking a woman who is willing to shave their head (or cut their hair very short) for a short, experimental film. The scene will be done in a bathtub so comfort with partial/full nudity is a plus but not necessary.

The project is going to be shot the weekend of March 1st (exact
day/time is flexible). I can't pay, but copy and credit will be provided as well as transportation (we will be shooting in New York, NY) and snacks for the shoot. The crew is small and the shoot will be laid back, fun, and creative.

Please email me for more details or if interested-
sb1956@nyu.edu

Thanks!

If anyone wants anything to do the night of December 7th, AC Gears, the new audio/gadget store on 8th St is hosting a preview party.

There will be a live DJ along with refreshments. If you can't stay the whole time, at least check it out for a little bit. The store's been under construction for the last few months and most of you have probably passed by it on your way to class or something.

RSVP through the Facebook event or email.

THIS SATURDAY @ NOON! [25 Nov 2007|04:55pm]

THE RACHEL TRACHTENBERG (of the Trachtenberg Family Slideshow Players) MORNING SHOW!!

Sat. Dec. 1st @ 12 pm (noon) @ THE GREEN ROOM
45 Bleecker St @ Lafayette
6 to Bleecker, B/D/F/V to Broadway-Lafayette, R/W to Prince



Tina and Jason (Mom and Dad) take a back seat on this one and let Rachel, their 13-year daughter (and drummer of the TFSP) boldly lead the show. It's a one-hour journey adapted from her real-life experiences in the endlessly creative community she's raised in. The RTMS is an inspiring show full of live music accompanied by felt board stories, handmade puppets, audience sing-alongs, a weather forecast, interactive arts and crafts, environmental messages, and cooking segments, all on a 60's retro D-I-Y set. The show will also feature guest appearances by some of Rachel's older friends: local artists and performers who stop by to share their own talents along the way. There's an overall theme here: encouraging young people to think outside the box. Each member of the audience will be supplied with their own goody bag of art supplies so they can participate in the interactive parts of the show…and there are many, so be prepared to get creative!



Video Preview!
