EAT YOUR WORDS -- WITCHES (oh my!)
"The Possession of Judy"
A new radical hand puppet show.
Creators/Performers: Sam Wilson, Jason Hicks, Tom Cunningham, Joe Therrien
Watch as Judy (a tough-as-nails New York City grandma) rejects the false binary of the left/right political rhetoric, and joins a coven of witches who are harnessing the power of the Divine Feminine in order to take down capitalism and its myriad symptoms plaguing society.
"Spurning Fertility/Smashing Tchotchkes"
Performed as a lesson in feminist art history, Turner lectures as she shows the evolution of quaint, banal knick-knacks. The deeply, viciously secure understanding of women's fertility as vessel in need of seed is thoroughly dismantled. With a smash and a laugh!
A dance solo excerpted from "Marigram," a longer work inspired by the mass protests of Tiananmen Square in 1989 and Tahrir Square in 2011, created in collaboration with Mohamed Yours Shika, Tuce Yasak, Yuan Liu, and Kay Hung.
Marin Sander Holtzman and Lee Free's live devotional dance-music band, Deer Leonardo is both Southern Italian Deer magic and love letter to the collective rhythm of body and mind. The vibe is modern with lots of queer disco and fab funk influences to get you moving!
Joined by the dapper smooth T Thompson on bass and vocals, and the indomitable Chris Perraut on vocals and Moog.
Funding made possible in part by the Puppet Slam Network, NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, NY State Council on the Arts, Scherman Foundation, and Doctorow Family Foundation.
