On October 8th at 8pm PPL is hosting the sixth PERFORMANCY FORUM, which will explore intersections in contemporary performance practices, facilitate informal peer feedback on works in progress, and work to create a community of conscious, post-product-based working artists. This time, through the lens of female authority, as we present all-women artists.

DON’T MISS this one! It’s going to be incredible:
Heidi Lauren Duke, opera director and choreographer, will be showing Lorca en Nueva York, a devised theatre piece using Federico Garcia Lorca’s poems and songs as found text, weaving them into a tapestry of the New York Experience through Lorca’s eyes. Performed in Spanish with English titles, the piece will culminate in a greater understanding of Lorca’s impact on urban life in the 20th century, and in the century to come. Additional new music by Anthony Ocana. Devised and directed by Heidi Lauren Duke. Featuring live performance by Carmine Aufiero, Sayda Trujillo, Laura Bohn, Anthony Ocana, and Heidi Lauren Duke. Movement developed by Sayda Trujillo and Heidi Lauren Duke. Projection photography by Will O’Hare.
Mariana Valencia , dancer, choreographer, and multi-media artist will be showing Huesitos z.p.g, created by Mariana Valencia/Rhinoceros Event and performed by Lydia Adler Okrent and Mariana Valencia. Mariana focuses on handmade things that grow from learning concepts by heart. She piles texture upon imagery upon sound to relay ideas of the everyday. Mariana’s performances are sensitive to mammoth-like instincts which fulfill sentiments of death, earnestness and etc.
MR Daniel, composer and sound artist showing Fell Through A Crack, a multimedia piece dealing with a daughter chasing an elusive relationship with her mother. The piece employs processed sound, movement, video, live voice and text.
Anya Liftig , performance artist, actionist, and interventionist, will be showing two untitled works on video that deal with making love to and with nature and explore the boundaries between humans and the environment that we live in.
postpost are Zoe Coombs Marr, Natalie Rose and Mish Grigor, a collaborative performance ensemble, based in Sydney and formed in 2004. Exploding out of the hot young Sydney DIY scene, post are fast gaining a reputation as one of Australia’s most interesting contemporary performance groups. Their performances are a unique combination of political sensibility and kitsch comedy. They make theatre, installation and video, and are constantly fascinated by the different manifestations of performance as it is placed in different spaces and contexts.
