Half Straddle: Here I Go, pt. 2 of You

Here I Go Image 2

Archived Event

No Longer Showing.

The reclamation of spaces, ideas, and paradigms by female-identified and informed bodies and queer bodies embodying feminist ethos MUST be made paramount at this moment in American Life. Half Straddle’s Here I Go, pt. 2 of You is an open work period and colloquy that encompasses rehearsals and showings of new theater and video work; the launch of an online journal of performance writing; public lectures; and communal zine-making activities that will act as accessible discussion periods. Here I Go, pt. 2 of You engages company members, peers, and their artistic heroes to expand critical artistic discourse to interrogate and reflect on how we codify; and to consider why various performances are made and ask what their making means at this time. The installation includes art work by John Davis and Heidi Hahn, and is designed by Parker Lutz and Tina Satter. Organized by Lumi Tan as part of The Kitchen L.A.B.: Position.
