As some of you know, I have been working with Esther Neff on an independent conference to gather people from various disciplines to theorize together prompted by –and through– specific acts of performance. “Theorems, Proofs, Rebuttals, and Propositions: A Conference of Theoretical Theater” will happen in September 2013, in New York. (For more info: http://theatreastheory.wordpress.com/home/)
I am really excited to announce that we will have a preview benefit event on March 23rd, with a lecture by Dr. Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak on imaginative training forepistemological performance. Also performances by Varispeed and Doug Barrett, and others. The event will be at Glasshouse in Brooklyn, and therefore we will only be able to accomodate 30 guests. If this sounds as thrilling to you as it does to me, please get your ticket soon (link below).
For those of you who will not be able to attend for whatever reason, we will have an online auction of various written accounts of the event, recorded live by those in attendance. All proceeds go to fund travel for artists coming to present at the conference. Please (even if you cannot come to the event) consider making a donation or auction purchase.
