PS122 Long Table and Durational Sewing Bee presented in partnership with Ps122 as part of Coil Festival

Ace Hotel New York, 20 West 29th Street, Mannahatta (Manhattan)
Umyuangvigkaq is “a place to gather ideas”. Let’s create a just and equitable world. Let’s spend some good time together doing so. Let’s chew our words, share them, listen. Let’s be okay when we don’t know. Let’s be supple and brave in our questions and our findings. We will stitch together a quilt of conversation, ideas, and fabrics. Here we will recognize indigenous people, artists, art methods, and audiences as we indigenize the performing arts and the world at large.
Come with ready hearts. Every 75 minutes we’ll shift a conversation to a new critical topic engaging the intersections of the Indigenous with contemporary American culture. This durational Sewing Bee underpins a large-scale experiment in public engagement and sewing culminating in an all-night, outdoor performance event in 2017, Then a Cunning Voice and A Night We Spend Gazing at Stars, created by Emily Johnson/Catalyst.

While in residence, esteemed theater-maker Mallory Catlett continues development on DEAD TIME OF PLEANTY, a performance installation that sets an old woman, a girl, and a dog against the backdrop of a dystopian city. The work features performers Black-Eyed Susan, Aleta Findlay and Milo, with sound by Lea Bertucci. DEAD TIME OF PLENTY takes up one of Dorris Lessing’s apocalyptic dreams, Memoirs of a Survivor.The novel and the gallery frames a performance of associative actions, moments of female adolescents and old age, human and animal together, against the backdrop of a slow-burning apocalypse where some are protected from the destruction of the environment while others lack basic resources.
M/F FUTURE is a diptych of performance installations about the future and the possibilities of becoming. DECODER 2017, a concert by night, and DEAD TIME OF PLENTY, a novel in a gallery by day, draw on the prophetic writings of William Burroughs and Doris Lessing. M/F Future is a Creative Capital project.
