4:38 pm - Free Event: "Conversations with Culture: Contemporary Performance and the Multiverse"

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.

11:13 am - Indie Rock Show!

Hi guys,
I'm new here but I joined because I have an event that I think fits perfectly for posting.

If anyone is a fan of indie music or a good live show, this is worth checking out.

Zigmat @ Soutpaw
125 Fifth Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11217

Show starts at 8PM
$10 at the door

Also featuring:
The Press
Courtesy Tier

"Brooklyn's Zigmat plays punky songs spiked with electronics; occasionally, singer Monica Rodriguez switches to Spanish. The international flavor is part Yeah Yeah Yeahs, part Brazilian Girls." - Time Out Magazine

"...this girl-fronted act reveals how much they've grown as they've merged the atmospherics of Air and Goldfrapp with a rich, dark electronic snarl." - Adam P. Newton, Dryvetyme Online

If you don't live near NYC, you can still check out Zigmat's music here:

6:10 pm - "Circumference" in Artists of Tomorrow Festival (x-posted to NYC communities...)

Hi Unique_Apples --

I'm a Minneapolis-based actress/writer/solo performer who sometimes (when I'm lucky!) gets to bring my shows to NYC..and in a little over a week, I'll be at the West End Theatre, doing my newest mostly-true comedy about body image, gastric bypass surgery, and the lingering horrors of 7th grade gym class. Since I don't live in the city (I wish!) and definitely don't have a built-in, loyal following (again...I wish!), I'm basically just using every avenue I can to invite people to check out some theatre they might not otherwise get to see. So - read on, and spread the word! :-)

Awkward Moment Productions and Six Figures Theatre present
in the 2008 Artists of Tomorrow Festival!

The Ghosts of Gym Teachers Past meet the Fear of Fitness Centers Present and the Obsession with Weight Loss Future in an all-new solo comedy about size, sweat…and exercising your demons. From Minneapolis actor/writer Amy Salloway, creator of the hit touring productions “Does This Monologue Make Me Look Fat?” and “So Kiss Me Already, Herschel Gertz!” comes the show the Calgary Herald calls, “hilarious, honest and unsparing, with a great sense of pace.” Says The Ottawa Citizen, “…an appealing and marvelously funny performer…you can also add brave and original.” And from the St. Paul Pioneer Press, “A MUST-SEE: poignant, sensitive and hysterically funny”.

Friday, December 12th at 8:00 pm
Saturday, December 13th at 1:00 pm
West End Theater, located in the Church of St. Paul & St. Andrew
263 West 86th St. (Broadway and West End Ave.)
New York, NY 10024
Tickets are $15.00

Thanks so much, and hope to see you there!

3:56 pm - Shave your head for art!

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-

11:56 am - The Poetry Brothel on Valentine’s Day

Yes, on that fateful day of all days I’ll be performing at The Poetry Brothel in a stylish and rockin’ gallery in Soho. Me and all the other poetry “whores” will give theaterical public performances of our work and be your “private” poetry dancer for a small fee. There will be drama and psychics and painters. And poetry. Some live music. Women pretending to be other women trying to be “hookers.” Play-acting and verse. Bad makeup and worse fishnet.

It’s a fund raiser for the Philip Levine Poetry Prize and it runs from 6PM to 12AM.
Here’s the address:

Jonathan Shorr Gallery in Soho (109 Crosby St. @ Prince) (close to the N/R/W stop, or the 6)

1:23 pm - Dec. 7th Party

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. This store is an extension of the online store, AudioCubes.com, and features unique, hard to find innovative and stylish electronics and gadgets. Normally the stuff confined to online retailers but can now be found and played with at an actual physical location!

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.

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!

Ages 2 and up!
