Artistic Social Action

KINDLE

January 10, 4pm – 6pm PST on Zoom

We are kicking KINDLE into high gear in 2021! This year, we will explore a collective through-line: how do we build community for the future? with facilitator, Zoya Sardashti of Home Soil. These KINDLE experiences involve collective actions that are efforts to radical futures here and now. Let’s come together to connect and amplify the values and needs of artists across private, public and virtual spaces.

KINDLE events will happen quarterly (January 10, April 11, July 11, October 10) with culminating demonstrations/happenings/actions/interventions.

In 2021, the KINDLE series will include:
1. Opportunities to develop and streamline ideas for projects
2. Offering methods in performance practice to generate new frameworks for making, doing and knowing
3. Collecting data about artist’s needs, interests and concerns
4. Creating a collective action (performative mediation) that can be performed in public and streamed online

Film Screening

A Year of DisDANCE

March 14

On March 16 2020, California officially received its first stay-at-home orders in response to COVID-19. In March of 2021, we will reflect on our experiences of this unusual and significant time with A Year of DisDANCE; a filmed dance concert that explores the ways in which we have adapted, reconsidered, forgotten, revived, mourned, amplified or otherwise understood dance and movement over the past year.
