MFA Thesis Performance
Dixon Place, NYC
Friday March 29 8:30pm
The festival opens this Friday at 8:30pm at Dixon Place with a ritual performance by yours truly. I'll be channeling the Mythic Bird, an avatar I created that embodies the liminal threshold between flesh and spirit, exploring potentials for collective liberation through touch, dance and glossolalia.
The evening's ritual also includes performance artists: Jana Astanov, Chloe Devine, Kim Doan Quoc, Pei-Ling Ho, Tina Wang
Please note that natural resins of sage, sandalwood and palo santo will burn throughout the performance. This ritual includes nudity throughout. There is no sex or violence. Okay for people aged-10 and above.
Please arrive early to be sure you can find a seat. The Undercommons at Dixon is an intimate space much smaller than the main stage.

Bioculturealities Symposium and Performance Festival
2020 date to be announced
Carondelet, St Louis
MARSH (Materializing & Activating Radical Social Habitus) is a bio-cultural laboratory located in Carondelet, St. Louis, MO. MARSH is a laboratory site for practical research into and as forms-of-life (habitus) both cultural and biotic. Where our (in)human bodies entangle, at an identified site/situation from which our embodiments and social bodilies can be seen to emerge, performativities are both compulsory and intentional, conditioned and designed.
This symposium and festival will ask and address inquiries such as: How do we intervene in and materialize ourselves and each other, our diverse and speciated directives, our multiplicit and shared eco-and-cultural-logics? How do we inhabit and materialize “realities” through difference, (in)decision, (e)motion, conception, collaboration, and meaning-making?
Open to the public across the week, full schedule to be announced soon. Participating Artists and Organzations: Beatriz Albuquerque, Michael Allen, Cyprus Atlas, Jessica Baran (+Nathaniel Farrell, TBA), Lorene Bouboushian, Shawn Escarciga, Maxi Glamour + Qu’art Cohort, Nicole Goodwin, Simone Johnson, Heather Kapplow, Sierra Ortega, Allana Ross,
