Xandra Ibarra aka La Chica Boom
F*CK MY LIFE (FML): A Cucaracha Sola Show

Sunday, July 14, 2013, 9:00pm
THE WILD PROJECT THEATER
Wild Project 195 E. 3rd Street, New York, NY

In an era rife with rampant Mexiphobia, a foul-mouthed cockroach maps the journey of a queer burlesque performer named La Chica Boom. After 10 years of performing Spic-tacles on and off stage, La Chica Boom is forced to interrogate her method for insurrection. Inspired by the original Mexican spitfire Lupe Velez who purportedly died with her head in the toilet, Chica spends night after night pacing her bathroom floor and staring into the porcelain bowl.

This performance will be presented as part of Wild Project's Fresh Fruit Festival.

Tickets are $18 and available at: https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pe/9799338 or call 212.352.3101

Xandra Ibarra is an Oakland based performance artist, lecturer and ecdysiast from the El Paso/Juarez border. Ibarra and her burlesque persona, La Chica Boom, have been featured in venues such as Museo Tamayo (Mexico), Joe's Pub (NYC), The Yerba Buena Arts Museum (SF), The Burlesque Hall of Fame (LV), The Vancouver Queer Film Festival (CA), and The National Queer Arts Festival (SF) to name a few. Recent residencies include Guillermo Gomez-Pena's Performance Art Intensive, CounterPULSE and Atlantic Center for the Arts as curated by Coco Fusco. Her work has been profiled by In Dance Journal, GLQ, SF Bay Guardian, SF Weekly, Telemundo, Seattle Gay News, Art Practical, and Curve Magazine. www.lachicaboom.com

This is a parallel program of the exhibition "Skin Trade" on view now thru July 26, 2013 at PPOW Gallery in Manhattan. http://www.ppowgallery.com/exhibition/1616/press

We will observe and investigate chosen places/spaces/locations in Brooklyn, discuss their roles and propose different practical working methods and forms of interactions to develop site-related performance, actions and interventions there. We will try to draw attention to those POPS and figure out how public, public spaces really are? Participants are encouraged to develop their own concepts, performance, action or intervention in one or more public spaces in Brooklyn. We will announce our location for July 12 on Facebook for the public culmination. Workshop fee: $50 for the week /$10 for one day.

"You Nakai" by drearysomebody
"Someone, let's say, a baby, is born; his parents call him by a certain name. They talk about him to their friends. Other people meet him. Through various sorts of talk the name is spread from link to link as if by a chain. A speaker who is on the far end of this chain, who has heard about, say Richard Feynman, in the marketplace or elsewhere, may be referring to Richard Feynman even though he can't remember from whom he first heard of Feynman or from whom he ever heard of Feynman. He knows that Feynman is a famous physicist. A certain passage of communication reaching ultimately to the man himself does reach the speaker. He then is referring to Feynman even though he can't identify him uniquely. (...) a chain of communication going back to Feynman himself has been established, by virtue of his membership in a community which passed the name on from link to link, not by a ceremony that he makes in private in his study: 'By 'Feynman' I shall mean the man who did such and such...'"

6pm-8pm @ Glasshouse
Body Art: A Long Table Discussion
Body-based performance art, or Body Art, often uses the performer's own flesh as a site for dealing with agency, human rights, identity, and human being itself. As a current of performance art running throughout the Americas as developed by artists such as Artur Barrio, Ana Mendieta, Rocío Boliver/La Congelada de Uva, and Ron Athey (the latter two joining us for this Long Table) and many others, We ask, how do these relations-often threatening, testing, and fetishizing the body's material flesh-also threaten power paradigms or enable other transformations? How do artists find their own lives transformed by their practices? What tales do their scars tell, and why? Join us for this special discussion in the format of a Long Table-a performance format conceived by Lois Weaver that experiments with participation and public engagement by reappropriating a dinner table atmosphere as a public forum, and encouraging informal conversations on serious topics. This event is co-sponsored by the Brooklyn International Performance Art Festival and the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics. hemisphericinstitute.org

Many of his works include aspects of S&M in order to confront preconceived ideas about the body in relation to masculinity and religious iconography" (wikipedia). "In this pasteurized society, I prefer to cause disgust, hatred, rejection, confusion, weariness, anxiety, hostility, fear ... to further promote mental asepsis."

BIPAF, No Collective
1. This performance takes place in two venues simultaneously. The audience may choose which one to attend. 2. In either one of the venues, this will be a strictly punctual event. Late arrivers to that venue will not
be allowed to enter. 3. BIPAF is a social collective that bases its works around investigating micro-cultures and introducing humorous artwork to a mass of seemingly un-interested viewers. It also makes music performances which explore and problematize both the conceptual and material infrastructures of music and performance. Since its inception circa 2007, members of BIPAF have varied both in quantity and quality according to each works' objective and situational conditions. By using familiarity and stereotypes, and often games, BIPAF is keen to widen the understanding of contemporary art mediums and open the mind to subjects that are close to home. Most recent works include Concertos No.4 (National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, 2012), a concert piece performed with ball-shaped speakers operated by blind performers in a completely darkened 16,000 square feet performance space, The Culture Show: Episode 4 The Cultural Wasteland Of London (Aired at LUPA 17, London, 2013), a physical performance highlighting cultural dispersion across London and the suburbs, and All Your Canals are Belong to Us (2012), a video piece which critically examines the hidden (political as well as cultural) relationship between the Panama Canal and video games (http://vimeo.com/25555106).4. "BIPAF" above should be read as "No Collective."

The Transparent Trap: A Power Pointless Presentation
(90 mins)
DIrected By: Jibz Cameron, Hedia Maron, Josef Kraska
Downtown NYC performance art maven-mogul Dynasty Handbag indulges in a most unusual tell-all - how to make an art video...and sell it to MOCAtv without losing all of her dignity but most of it. Handbag offers us every inch of transparency in our age of seven veils. Dynasty will elaborate upon her recent video ETERNAL QUADRANGLE and screen new works, including confessional tour diary DYNASTY HANDBAG: A DREAM IS NOT A LIFE (Dir: Hedia Maron) - a lo-fi riff on the recent Beyonce doc, LIFE IS BUT A DREAM. Also beuting is a video music/performance/spaceweirdo video REMOTE PENETRATION (Dir: Josef Kraska), wherein DH plays a drone, a daddy, a sequenced, slack-mouthed lounge singer, and features a 4-year-old DH with a giant bug exterminator in hand.

GET TICKETS SOON THIS WILL SELL OUT JUST LIKE I DID! (http://www.outfest.org/tixSYS/2013/xslguide/eventnote.php?EventNumber=3905)

Carole and Mitzi Present RODS AND CONES
donate here pleeeeese! (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1807378389/carole-and-mitzi-present-rods-and-cones?ref=live)

Rods and Cones is a comedy series about high-power, low-profit comics Carole and Mitzi, as they take on their rivals, The MILFies. The first season focuses on Carole and Mitzi's (Beth Lisick and Tara Jepsen) adventures with The MILFies. The MILFies - George and Bess (Erin Markey and Jibz Cameron) - are performance artists in their 30's trying to make some real money by pretending to be Mommy comics (GREAT MOVE, GALS!!). George and Bess taunt Carole and Mitzi into entering a women's comedy contest in Los Angeles, The Over the Shoulder Comedy Boulders festival. The grand prize is a place on a comedy reality show. The season follows these four women as they get to know each other, blow each other, and show each other their bizarre emotional landscapes, great jokes and weird bodies. Watch the Preview!

Long Table: Performance and the Archive | 7pm
Professor Diana Taylor will lead a Long Table discussion on digital corporeality in online archives; affective experience as a form of ephemera; the abject body in performance documentation; archivist practices in processing performance materials; and the performativity of documentation.
Performing the Archive Exhibit Inauguration and Reception | 8pm
Performing the Archive will examine how primary materials from live performance-artifacts, photographs, books, props, and moving images-enact moments of liveness post-performance.
The exhibit will feature materials by the following artists: 2boystv, Arthur Aviles, Nao Bustamante, Coatlicue Theatre Company, Colectivo de Acciones de Arte (CADA), Susana Cook, Fulana, Guillermo Gómez-Peña & La Pocha Nostra, H.I.J.O.S., Regina José Galindo, Mujeres Creando Comunidad, Jesusa Rodríguez, Split Britches, Carmelita Tropicana, and Grupo Cultural Yuyachkani.

A reception will follow.
July 11th | 5-7pm
Roundtable: Performing the Archive
The roundtable will bring together scholars, artists, and archivists to reflect on the challenges posed by 'live' practices and embodied repertoires to conventional understandings of the archive.
Performing the Archive events will take place at the Hemispheric Institute, which is located at 20 Cooper Square, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10003.
This program is free and open to the public. A photo ID is required to enter NYU.
