For its Fourth Annual Back to School Mixer, Women & Performance is pleased to present Ember Ground,an exploration of transitional spaces of self, embodiment, and the social. We take inspiration from Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick’s Touching Feeling as we join with artists to imagine new theoretical terrain in identity formation and fresh notions of blended practice. These middle grounds are explored as fickle states, where only uncertainty is certain. Already expired yet still burning, an ember may either burst into flames or slowly extinguish. Dwelling in interdisciplinary states across dance, sound, performance, and visual art, this evening includes short experimental works continuing and in development by New York City-based performance artists NIC Kay, Ita Segev, and Samita Sinha.
This evening includes a reception, a curated music playlist, and a Women & Performance Reading Room. Co-curated by Alessandra Gomez, Yarden Stern, and Christina Yang, this program is sponsored by Women & Performance: a journal of feminist theory.
