Still Happening Now! By Alys Ayumi Ogura and collaborators

A night of spin-off from the Painting the Room

Featuring: Miles AllenAnna Andaházy, Nora Anderson, Sarah Clewett, Eddie Estrin, and Alys Ayumi Ogura.

Painting the Room is an interdisciplinary improvisation group of dancer, musicians, and spoken word artists who gather to create performance on the spot. For this spin-off project, Alys Ayumi Ogura invited fellow performers from Painting the Room to join her for “Still Happening Now!” Using improvisation and unique props, they explore how unloving objects add layers to the instant composition which gives ultimate freedom from construction hierarchies of performer and creator and also tightens the bonds between artists. If you are interested in joining interdisciplinary improvisation and would like to attend the jam hosted by the group and/or invite the group to perform at your space, you can sign-up here

Nooshin Hakim/Safa Sarvestani

Is Different , so Forget

Nooshin Hakim and Safa Sarvestani both Iranian artists are examining the idea of trust in their recent work. They use Iranian old sayings to exercise the idea of trust and truth in their work. Within their performance practice, the act of holding tension is also ever present.Revisiting old sayings  become important in the context of political and social tension. Their work is a small window to a long history of  futile attempts created by Iranian and American artists , two nations in the conflict. 

Created with and featuring: Pedram Baldari, Jenna Rahaim Rice, Shirin Ghoerishi, Behnaz foroonatinia.
