This Friday night (August 20), Surreal Estate will present this show, which promises to be very good.
8pm – Philip White
9pm – SK Orchestra
11pm – Post Abortion Stress
Post Abortion Stress (PAS) will also be joined by Emily Pope Blackman, doing an improvisational dance piece, and Brian Thayer and Justin Drake from Hyrax/Muzzled Recordings as well as Dave Tamura and Marc from Clutter, AND PAS will be giving away limited free comps of their new album “Pure Energy Output Sessions,” which isn’t even on the interweb yet.
Due to shows like this, Surreal Estate continues to win the hearts of a diverse Bushwick community, despite police abuse at our last fundraiser, we have completed renovation of the performance space and turned the garage into a very pleasant hang-out spot. Our home is your home! Come for the music, stay for the conversation.
PPL got to break the ice with an audience on Monday night during a Salon evening where we performed the first 15 minutes of ‘The Last Dreams of Helene Weigel or How to Get Rid of The Feminism Once and For All’ alongside performances by ThingNY Artistic Director (and PPL Collaborator!) Paul Pinto and Latasha N. Nevada Diggs among others.
Afterwards, Matthew Lyons (the Kitchen) led us in a talkback session.
This salon, done in the beautiful wood-floored room at University Settlement on 184 Eldridge in the East Village, had a decidedly Modern, formal flavor, while the PERFORMANCY FORUM we held on Friday, May 7, was punctuated by Dr. Motorcycle, the black and white cat, pawing at moving images on the projector screen, and included a lot of informal conversation and laughter.
PPL is especially delighted to get to know the PERFORMANCY FORUM participants:
The SK Orchestra
Gratuitous Art Films
Orly Bendavid and Ari Swan
and films by Marguerite Chandler (one of which was banned at the Archive)
THANK YOU TO ALL FROM BOTH SALONS!
