WTF is going on?!??! COVID-19 & the astrology of 2020 with Jaime Wright
Jaime is an astrologer, writer and you may also know her as a retired performance artist. DM to book a show on her comeback tour.
Says Jaime – People ask me, “did astrology predict what was going to happen? Like … with … uh coronavirus?” And the answer is “ummmmm…very much so yes.” In the astrological community, 2020 has been circled in red ink for many, many “moons if you will. This is a talk about COVID-19 & the astrology of 2020.
Object Collection was founded in 2004 by writer/director Kara Feely and composer/musician Travis Just. Based in Brooklyn, the group operates within the intersecting practices of performance, experimental music and theater. We are concerned with simultaneity, complexity, and radicality, combining dense layers of text, notation, objects and processes. We work to give audiences unconventional viewing experiences through our merging of theatricality and pedestrian activity. Our works upset habitual notions of time, pace, progression and virtuosity. We value accumulation above cohesion.
They will present bits and bobs from past and future pieces. An exercise in extremes and a fanfare for the dispersed. False pretenses, plagiarism, and precisely-placed things.
Katrina is a Broadway performer who runs an accordion repair shop called Main Squeeze Accordions.
She will be playing a few pop songs.
Jennifer has masters degrees in both urban planning and public health and currently is the North American leader for Urban Systems at ERA (prounced like the word ‘era’), a division of Woods Bagot (pronounced bag-it’). Jon is a founding artist and the managing director of The In[HEIR]itance Project (pronounced ‘Inheritance’), a national arts organization that helps communities navigate challenging civic conversations through open-access playmaking.

The Immeasurable Want of Light (IWL) is a constellation of micro plays drawn from my daily writing practice, Everyday Afroplay, inspired by Chris Ofili’s Afro Muses. Amidst a pageant of funny, poignant, and weird colony residents, we track Maker, a black, overweight artist, as she attempts to break free of cultural bondage into visibility.
