"Star Crap Method Injury Edition: A place for healing" is the performance that started my attention to my improvisation practice, Star Crap Method, and healing ritual work specifically. Accompanied by Reiki practitioner, Kris Seto, I use SCM verbal narration to share with the audience my felt experience during Reiki healing. I was too injured to dance, but as I always do, used the show as an opportunity to explore what is really happening with my dancing body and connect with the moment, my collaborator and the audience. Directed by Larissa Velez-Jackson (me) and performed by Kris Seto and me, composed in real-time by Kris Seto and me, with sound design by me #LVJjay at :
Movement Research Spring Festival 2017: Inside Out / Upside Down
Location: C'Mon Everbody in Brooklyn, NY
Thursday June 1, 2017
Curated by Laurie Berg, Monstah Black, and Amy Koshbin
Inside Out Upside Down is about paying homage to our roots and the importance of coming together in this political battleground. What is the role of the club in activating a community and creating a cross-cultural blend? Tendayi Kuumba @whostendayi, Larissa Velez-Jackson @larissatwitta, and Mr. Richard Kennedy @mrrichardkennedy blend movement and sound in a series of performances that move into a workshop led by famed Jackie 60 MC Paul Alexander @opaltuesday, Chi Chi Valenti @chichi03f6, DJ Johnny Dynell @johnny.dynell and special guests. Jackie 60, a nightclub hybrid that blurs the lines between performance and party, will be representing their unique brand of dynamic space in the lounge as DJ Adam Rhodes from PAPI JUICE transforms the back room into a reckless abandonment dance party, with Jackie 60 MCs and DJ Johnny Dynell taking it over (the top) to the end of the night. C’mon Everybody, turn yourself Inside Out Upside Down.
