Lecture on Something
by Nathan Repasz
Nathan Repasz will deliver a “Lecture on Something,” a vacuously futile engagement with John Cage’s “Lecture on Nothing” (1959). Cage’s original work reflects a deep ethos of stillness and contemplation; this lecture will reflect our current ethos of frenetic, bureaucratic, nonsensical, manically serpentine frenzy. The work will present a conceptual foray into linguo-percussive situationism, nonsensical phenomenology, and the liminal space of fundamental misunderstanding, dancing around sense, but never finding footing.

¿CÓMO PUEDO AMARME?
Created by Anabel Lugones De León and Charlie Chauca
A desperate escape for calmer waters in an ocean filled with sharks, ¿Cómo Puedo Amarme? dives inside the mind of a Non-Binary Cuban-Dominican, ELLE , amidst their ongoing fight with clinical depression. Through dance, spiritual encounters and scar-filled memories, ELLE, attempts to outswim a storm of sharks to find peace within themselves or drown in familial waters.
Performed by Anabel Lugones De León
Directed by Charlie Chauca
