David Gilbert performed a puppet show, with puppets that are made from old clothes, yarn and construction paper. The show blends poetry and comedy.
Jules Gimbrone performed "Trio," a sculptural and live performance that discusses sound practice as queer, a broken guitar being tuned, and water being dripped from a wet t-shirt into a pot.
Ann Hirsch promised something weird that would probably make you feel uncomfortable, and delivered in the most ecstatic way.
Maura Brewer gave a short lecture that considers questions of identification, feminism, and agency relative to an actress's recent roles in Zero Dark 30 and Interstellar.
Danielle Dean screened a new video, which combines hand drawn animation and shot footage using a Nike sneaker as subject.
Paul Pescador screened a video and read dialogue revolving around dance and intimacy at a grocery store.
Brian Getnick presented a short choreographic fragment in the character of the old magician, part of his larger research project on how a character's affect, movement, and sound can become the score for a dance.
Karen Adelman sang a few of her most recent "Focus" meditations, which are excerpts from an experimental sci-fi opera/novel in progress about a dispersed resistance in a world suffused with noise.
