Jason Grote (playwright) / Kate Benson (performer) /

This play has one actress. It is a monologue about consumerism and 9/11, told by a mentally ill woman in a 24-hour grocery store at 4AM, a few days after the attacks. It has been performed at NYU (Marathon of New Works & Grad Student Arts Fest); Chashama (Oasis02 & Theaters Against War Freedom Follies) and Makor (92nd St. Y Fest).

Friday, August 20 8pm
"Jukebox Jazz" a program curated by Martha Colburn from her collection of scopatones.
Cab Calloway, Count Basie, Lena Horne-these are some of the stars of the 16mm musical films shown in film-jukeboxes in the 1940s-'50s. With their hillbilly hits, saucy European songs, stripteases, and more they made music-film/video history. Their innocence, inventiveness, humor and views on sexuality and race are historically informative-and entertaining!

"The Beast Within Again" curated by M.M. Serra.
An extravaganza of sexy films by artists from the LOWER east side includes: Jack Smith's "Flaming Creatures", Barbara Rubin's double screen projection "Christmas on Earth", Abby Child's "Mayhem", Jennifer Reeves/M.M.

Put on your finest rags and come celebrate sexuality and cinema.

New Turbulence Commission Announcement
"Memoryflesh 2.0: a Micro Media Record" by Diane Ludin

"Memoryflesh 2.0" is an assemblage of media montages--driven by live "fake suturing" performances--that implies a variety of stories about the human genome's emergence as a voice of scientific authority. The project's purpose is to generate a concrete, bodily response to a disembodied, public process.

"Memoryflesh 2.0: a Micro Media Record" is a 2004 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, (aka Ether-Ore) for its Turbulence web site. It was made possible with funding from the Jerome Foundation. Additional support provided by Harvestworks Artist in Residence program and Thing.net.
