Drawing explicit connections between the benediction of the blessed sacrement in Catholic Mass tradition\, and the ritualistic nature that builds certain queer communities through mutual adulation for female icons and shared trauma\, we show how the psychological understandings of how this type of fantasy and worship both helps and hinders the development of these social understandings.  \n  \nAlong with an underlying focus on pop cultural icons\, the work posits a number of questions on the nature of what we mean when we reference a “safe space.” Similarly\, this work interrogates how the word “sanctuary” plays a role in rooting itself in safety\, and how that differs vastly across various artistic communities. For example\, we are thinking deeply on how the studio or the theater is often a sanctuary space for dancers\, drawing similarities to nightclubs as a longtime sanctuary space for queer life.  \n  \nCOMMUNITY EXERCISES FOR SANCTUARY SPACES is sponsored\, in part\, by a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant.  Additional development of COMMUNITY EXERCISES was made possible with support from The Floor\, Danspace Project Draftwork Series\, DanceNOW NYC and individual donors.  \n*Presented as part of The Exponential Festival 2020 at Jonah Bokaer Arts Foundation \nPhoto Credit for Jonah Bokaer Arts Foundation photos – Whitney Brown\nPhoto Credit for St Marks Church photo – Shannon Nash \n  \nThe Brick – 579 Metropolitan \n$20 \nNo BYOB \n \n  \n  \n URL:https://www.bricktheater.com/event/community-exercises-for-sanctuary-spaces/2020-03-01/ LOCATION:Brick Theater\, 579 Metropolitan Ave\, Brooklyn\, 11211\, United States ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.bricktheater.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/K0A5989-scaled.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20200228T200000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20200228T213000 DTSTAMP:20200128T080228 CREATED:20200127T182131Z LAST-MODIFIED:20200127T182446Z UID:323-1582920000-1582925400@www.bricktheater.com SUMMARY:Community Exercises for Sanctuary Spaces DESCRIPTION:Directed and Choreographed by Brendan Drake in collaboration with the performers \nFeaturing: Quentin Burley\, Lena Engelstein\, Shannon Nash and Calvin Tsang \n  \nCommunity Exercises for Sanctuary Spaces is an interdisciplinary work for five performers using movement\, original text and sound to unearth how emulation and impersonation can function as a coping mechanism for navigating modern systems of gendered power dynamics and homophobia.

Lenzu’s dance theater piece uses spoken word\, drawings\, and video projections to tell a personal vision of femininity\, and what it means to be a woman today. \nChoreographer/Dancer: Anabella Lenzu \nVideo Projection Design: Todd Carroll \nDirector: Daniel Pettrow \nCostumes: Jennifer Johanos \n“No More Beautiful Dances\,” a dance/theater solo in which the spoken word\, drawings\, and video projections merge to offer a very personal view of femininity and what it means to be a woman today. \nIn this interdisciplinary solo\, Anabella’s wrestles with issues of identity as experienced by a contemporary artist who is also a woman\, mother\, and immigrant. “I had arrived at a moment where I am 44 years old\,” she states\, “have two kids\, notice my body aging\, and reflecting on other changes psychologically and emotionally. The work keeps me humble and honest about who I am and what I look like. I show the things most people want to hide as dancers. I show the body of a 42-year old woman. For me it’s about embracing who I am at the moment.” On another level\, the artist feels that through dialogue with collaborators and mentors\, her work starts out specific\, but arrives at a universal message. \nThe choreography is captured not only by the audience\, but by two live-streaming cameras\, one above and the other below the stage area\, two laptops and two projectors. Technology in this piece is a magnifying glass\, showing something normally hidden from view. The cameras become a portal to another dimension for the audience and performer. \n​ \n*Photo credit: Theo Cote \n URL:https://www.bricktheater.com/event/no-more-beautiful-dances/2020-01-23/ LOCATION:Brick Theater\, 579 Metropolitan Ave\, Brooklyn\, 11211\, United States CATEGORIES:Exponential Festival ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.bricktheater.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/521463_318bb67f10be44f8a6770f5c372c5ff8_mv2_d_2304_1536_s_2.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20200122T193000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20200122T213000 DTSTAMP:20200128T080229 CREATED:20191229T133916Z LAST-MODIFIED:20191229T134004Z UID:120-1579721400-1579728600@www.bricktheater.com SUMMARY:Becky's Lament DESCRIPTION:Split bill with No More Beautiful Dances \nBecky’s life in her sweet little hometown is delightful—or is it?

Follow her down memory lane\, over\, under\, around and through the unspeakable “Incident” she won’t let herself remember. CJ Holm creates and explodes Becky’s world through text\, movement\, music\, and authentic Midwestern cuisine. \nwritten\, choreographed\, and performed by CJ Holm​ \nInspired by a trip to the rural Midwest\, writer/choreographer CJ Holm began to imagine an alternate self whose parents hadn’t gotten out of their small town. The character of Becky began to form—sincere and earnest; convinced of her own virtue; pleased as punch with her place in the cosmos. But an unspeakable “Incident” in her town’s past throws a spike in the middle of Becky’s straight and clear path. Who gets to be innocent? What sharp reality is Becky protecting with her squishy pleasantries? And what does it all have to do with Grandma’s recipe for zucchini bread? \n URL:https://www.bricktheater.com/event/beckys-lament/2020-01-21/ LOCATION:Brick Theater\, 579 Metropolitan Ave\, Brooklyn\, 11211\, United States CATEGORIES:Exponential Festival ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.bricktheater.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/521463_4e9843c5598143a7bba450e2e64c6128_mv2_d_3264_2448_s_4_2-scaled.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20200121T193000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20200121T213000 DTSTAMP:20200128T080229 CREATED:20191229T133730Z LAST-MODIFIED:20200113T133108Z UID:112-1579635000-1579642200@www.bricktheater.com SUMMARY:No More Beautiful Dances DESCRIPTION:Split bill with Becky’s Lament \n“No more beautiful dances” wrestles with the ideas of exploration\, introspection\, and reframing of a woman after becoming a mother\, and being an immigrant.

Varispeed performs a new song cycle based on The Blurring Test: Conversations with the online chatbot MrMind on what it means to be human. \nMusic composed and performed by Varispeed: \nGelsey Bell\, Brian McCorkle\, Paul Pinto\, Dave Ruder\, Aliza Simons \nLibretto\, concept and design by Peggy Weil \nFrom 1998 through 2014\, an online chatbot named MrMind administered The Blurring Test\, asking simply\, “Can you convince me that you are human?” The sixteen years of online conversations\, from all over the world\, form a human chorus proclaiming our vision of ourselves during a time of significant transition in the relationship between humans and machines. Can you convince your computer you are human? \nThis new song-cycle is a musical adaptation of the texts by Peggy Weil based on transcripts from conversations between MrMind and humans from around the globe. This suite of eleven songs is scored for voices\, electronics and instruments\, utilizing the composers’ aesthetic diversity: (opera\, art song\, folk song\, improvisation\, synth and drone music\, and movement) to highlight the breadth of conversations with MrMind. \nVarispeed\, working across genres and performance styles\, approach this critically important topic through Peggy Weil’s libretto and decades of transcripts. This evening-length concert will be accompanied by projected text compiled and designed by Peggy Weil. \nPeggy Weil\, a Los Angeles based artist\, initiated The Blurring Test as a global conversation on humans and machines in 1998. The website\, MrMind.com was one of the very early examples of net art and perhaps the first to employ a working bot. Her libretto is compiled from sixteen years (unprecedented longevity for digital art) of transcripts representing the current\, and as yet unfolding\, story of our relationship with machines. She has exhibited widely including The Climate Museum in NYC and LACMA in LA. \n URL:https://www.bricktheater.com/event/the-blurring-test-songs-from-mrmind/ LOCATION:Brick Theater\, 579 Metropolitan Ave\, Brooklyn\, 11211\, United States CATEGORIES:Exponential Festival ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.bricktheater.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/521463_e1f043d0253f4fdeb8a56246ee48530e_mv2.jpg END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
