Chair, table, miracle, ecstasy (work in progress)
Choreographed and Performed by Barbie Diewald


Performers: Alina Ruiz Folini – José Corral
Voice: Phoebe Osborne / Kathryn Trigg

Concept: Alina Ruiz Folini
‘Map’ was created in collaboration with José Corral.

Togetherness is a performative practice that seeks to investigate how to be with others.
It is based in the potency of the movement as a language, using repetition as a provocation to discover what is new.

This iteration was made possible by Dance OMI 2015 – Omi International Arts Center and AIR Chez Bushwick.
Thank you Salvatore Cataldo and Christopher K. Morgan.

Prosody and Commoning on Governor’s Island exhibition and performance by Daria Faïn and Robert Kocik

11AM: door opens Exhibition (on display all day): drawings and documentation concerning commoning and the Prosodic Body

1PM-3PM: Talks and Discussion with feminist activist, teacher, communalist historian Silvia Federici and the visionary socialist, writer, composer, bandleader, baritone saxophonist Fred Ho, moderated by Robert Kocik. Fred Ho: FUTURE’S END: COMMUNISM AND ECOLOGY, REVOLUTION IS THE ONLY SOLUTION AND IT MUST BE LUDDITE! In this talk Fred Ho will ask: what is revolutionary socialist ludditism? Why is it the only solution? Why is it matriarchal (matri-centric) and indigenous-centric and why must these features be the foundation for a truly effectively revolutionary movement? More on Sylvia Federici: (the nature of her talk will be announced in a subsequent email).

3PM-4PM: Performance of the Commons Choir (conceived and directed by Daria Faïn and Robert Kocik). This piece is called Re-English-a re-tuning, an atoning for the fact that our current economic, climate and security crises are consequents of the sonic and connotative qualities of the English language-by means of phonemes as cosmogony; sound sequences as specific biochemical signaling, a reparation narrative, poetry as protection, and full recovery of the lost optative mood. With Aretha Aoki, Margot Basset, Chung-chen Chang , Stephen Cooper, Levi Gonzalez, Hazuki Homma, Masumi Kishimota, Dora Koimtzi, Athena Kokoronis, Martin Lanz, Mina Nishimura, Peter Sciscioli, Kensaku Shinohara and Samita Sinha.

4PM-5PM: Screening of Collecting Collective Phase I: Filmic interpretations of commoning directed by Iki Nakagawa with contributions from Caterina Verde and Douglas Manson.
