- Performance/MACHINE: Jell-O, Drano, Meteorology & Shape-Shifting
Kathleen Brown, Genji Amino, Liat Berdugo, Donna Fierle, Eliese Colette Goldbach, Sonja Greckol, Erin Robinsong, Lia Pas
performance/MACHINE is a structured improvisation of multi-media experiments combining text, performance, sound, electronic instruments, visual music and animation.deconstructs and re-composes the relationship between audience and performer. The performance consists of six movements or Whe(a)thers that are individual ‘compositions’ playing with futures of text: text’s tomorrow is uncertain, jiggly, re-forming and re-winding, a voice held in puberty’s wavering clasp.
- No Future

Turning away from the positivist, well-lit vista of literary futurism & political progressivism, this panel will semaphor our queer concerns through a discussion of Art-poison; ecstatic states; media and channels; fatal art (not just for the artist); hack art & art-hacks; resistance & submission; the Necropastoral & the viral tree of life/the space in which writer & reader bleed through paper & kiss a dead being/it is embarrassing to be human.
A follow-up report will emerge somewhere after the fact, I'm sure. If you will be at &NOW this weekend, please say hello. You will recognize me by these facts: 1.) I am a shaved-head lady, and 2.) I am generally sporting a feral-looking scowl, but wouldn't you know it that I'm pretty friendly once you get to know me!
