A few weeks ago, Li Cata brought over a bottle of wine and we discussed his questions about what is DIY, politics, aesthetics, etc. Read the discussion on the Movement Research blog Critical Correspondence HERE!!

CENTER FOR MAROONED CITIZENS is a site-specific amateur psychiatry society that gathers information on individual selves by reducing formal methodologies (including tarot, cognitive therapy, self-help) to performative, arcane interactions. A booth-like “center” will be placed at four different locations in Lower Manhattan across four days, open to the general public.
Results will appear online as infographics and texts dealing with the problematics of information ecology, especially the division of living cultural and social systems into calculable components that can (supposedly) be used to plan for the future of the Lower East Side at large.
Created and performed by Panoply Performance Laboratory (Esther Neff and Brian McCorkle). http://www.panoplylab.org/
The undergroundzero festival is an international laboratory, cooperative, and platform for adventurous, independent, risk-taking artists in the fields of theatre, dance and live arts. It was founded in 2007 by Artistic Director Paul Bargetto and has been presented in numerous venues in New York City including Collective:Unconscious, Manhattan Children’s Theater, The Flea, Clemente Soto Velez Cultural and Educational Center and the Living Theatre.
