Program Description

Our 2020 programming includes the following sessions: ITERATION LAB 2.0, is an extended weekend session that offers residents an opportunity to iterate a performative structure of their choosing, taking place on a family farm near Kingston, NY in late April. IMMERSION 4.0, is the forth iteration of our VR intensive that engages with themes of immersivity born out of a deep sensitivity to the history and surroundings of Wilmington, NC set to take place at Cucalorus. BODIES, FIELD, AND WAVES OF ATTUNEMENT will focus on interdisciplinary explorations (somatic, ecological, performative, etc) on the themes of attuning, re-tuning and de-tuning, taking place in the bucolic finger lakes region at the Rochester Folks Arts Guild in Middlesex, NY. PERFORMING KNOWLEDGE, will be a summer intensive exploring the performativity of knowledge's conception, transmission and reception, set to take place at Pittsburgh's Community Forge and nearby church.
