THE MILK BAR #35 - coming right up!
Mary Armentrout
dear elist,
so YES! it is time for the summer Milkbar Salon - coming to you on Friday August 8th, starting at 8:30 pm as per usual. We do indeed have a wonderful show for you - movement explorations of very different stripes from Rebecca Chun, Sheena Johnson, and Daria Kaufman (Daria is on her way out the door, moving to Lisbon! so if you want a chance to see her work, NOW is the time!) PLUS Jose Navarette and Debby Kajiyama will be exploring the movement and image possibilities of a tricycle set up with a video camera and projector (yep), while Kinetech, which is Daiane Lopes da Silva and Weidong Yang, will be opening up a time bubble through video and performance, and then Evelyn Ficarra will be investigating the sonic and performative qualities of tea cups and perhaps other objects.
happily, we have a really nice write up about the Milkbar and this show from Rita Felciano in the East Bay Monthly - you can find that here: (things shifted a little, as always with the Milkbar Salons, so no pigs, sadly, but hey, tricycle!)
and you can also find a cool editor's pick from Laura Brueckner about the Milkbar Salons in the current Theatre Bay Area Magazine, link to that is here:
we hope you can come down to the biscuit factory and enjoy the art-making as it happens - cheap beer and silly snacks as always...
all the details below -
