Written and Performed by Judith Sloan
Directed by Joanna Settle
Performed with live dj and musicians

What happens when a performing artist survives a near-death car accident and collides with the oncoming traffic of Hip Hop culture? Actress and radio producer Judith Sloan known for her one woman performances and her collaboration with Warren Lehrer on the multi-media project Crossing the BLVD: strangers, neighbors, aliens in a new America spent 15 years teaching in schools and jails where she encountered and reported on immigration stories, cultural clashes, and generation gaps. Now she teams up with director, Joanna Settle presenting the sometimes funny, sometimes sad, truth-seeking play YO Miss! Teaching Inside the Cultural Divide. Fusing the art of theatre and radio, Yo Miss is an eye- and ear-witness account of one artist navigating a maze of miscommunications and memories, while breaking down assumptions that divide residents of a city who live in close proximity but come from conflicting worlds. In Yo Miss! Sloan transforms into a multitude of characters, accompanied on stage with live sound engineer/DJ Luke Santy and musician/actors Joell Jackson and Emi Augustin.

Yo Miss is project of EarSay, a non-profit devoted to portraying stories of the uncelebrated. Produced by Judith Sloan, Yo Miss is being developed in partnership with Viper Records and Morgan Jenness from Abrams Artists Agency. A portion of the proceeds from the Yo Miss! theatre project go to support EarSay's Youth Education project for immigrant and refugee teenagers. Special thanks to Michael Dinwiddie for direction of work-in-progress performances.

3. Sonya Rapoport, FF Alumn, in Zero1 Biennial, Performance Art Institute, San Francisco, CA, Oct. 19

Sonya Rapoport will present the next phase of her project, The Nuclear Family in the Atomic Age, Extended, as an Audience Participation Performance, at the Zero1 Biennial. This performance will take place at the Performance Art Institute in San Francisco. The Nuclear Family in the Atomic Age was recently shown at the CEMEX Auditorium, Stanford University with Richard Rhodes' play, Reykjavik. The play is based on the conversation between Presidents Reagan and Gorbachev about human rights and limiting nuclear arms. Rapoport's presentation of the extended Nuclear Family portrays the trials and errors in reawakening the Golem for protection against Atomic disaster.

Curated by Sean Fletcher and Isabel Reichert, The Artist is Elsewhere, an evocative nod to Marina Abramovic's retrospective,"The Artist is Present", is a juxtaposition of radically different ways of existing in time and space. Artists participating in the event include Linda Ford, Justin Charles Hoover, Scott Kildall, Sonya Rapoport, Roland Roos, Stoll and Wachall, Lee Walton, Gordon Winiemko, and Michael Zheng.



4. Vito Acconci, FF Alumn, at Parsons The New School, Manhattan, Oct. 10

Fall 2012 Visiting Artist Lecture Series presents: Vito Acconci - Oct 10

Vito Acconci

Vito Acconci's design and architecture comes from backgrounds of writing and art. His poems in the late 60's treated language as matter and the page as a field to travel over; his performances in the early 70's helped shift art from object to interaction; in the early 80's, his architectural-units were meant to be transformed by users. By the late 80's his work crossed over and he formed Acconci Studio, a design firm that mixes poetry and geometry, computer-scripting and sentence-structure, narrative and biology, chemistry and social-science. Built in the last decade are, in Graz, a person-made island where the theater, a bowl, twists to become a playground on its way to becoming a dome, a restaurant; in Coney Island an elevated subway-station façade that waves and bulges to make views and seats.
