A/G/A is a collective I’ve been involved in since this summer. I have performed with the group in monthly Cabaret Cabaret shows, held at the A/G/A HQ (1619 W 16th St) in Pilsen. It’s always a crazy night with bold performances, music, and readings. Come check us out sometime!
This Saturday, we debut durational performances throughout the home-gallery space. Come by and see some crazy and relevant, but rarely pretentious, art! I’ll be performing select actions from a current piece, Actions for an Asian Immigrant in the A/G/A basement space.
Check out my vocal/burlesque performance of Brandy’s “Almost Doesn’t Count” at Anatomy Gift Association’s Cabaret Cabaret 6!

Last performances by Eiko & Koma this weekend at the Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago). Planning on going Saturday.
Who’s with me?
Who are Eiko & Koma?
Eiko & Koma are venerated dance artists who have been making collaborative works for more than 40 years, since leaving Japan for New York in 1974. Using their bodies, duration, and process as their guideposts, they create stark, elemental works in landscapes, in rivers, in graveyards, and are presented by theaters, museums, and festivals world-wide.
Their living installation, Naked, is set in a human-scale nest of canvas, twigs, and feathers, with the audience steps away from the artists. It is a durational performance by Eiko & Koma and the audience may come and go. Immersive and transcending, it invites you, in their words, to “linger, stay here with your eyes, live, and kinetically observe how our bodies move towards death.” Situated in the Turner Gallery, Eiko & Koma perform Naked as part of the exhibition Time Is Not Even, Space Is Not Empty, on view through November 13, 2011, and which invites you to experience their remarkable career arc with key works through photographic and video documentation, installations, and live performance.
