Announcing MIXploratorium Nov 22-Dec 2!

Published by admin on November 7th, 2011

This Fall, join the Department and the MIX New York Experimental Queer Film Festival and Allied Productions — as we bring you two weeks of visual and performing art at the La MaMa Galleria.

Working as a cyborg sibling to the MIX festival, the Department of Transformation continues our tradition of queering experimentalization, offering you both an installation of vidusal art and performances that include fantastical storytelling, works-in-progress, films from our queerstory, participatory hair-art, Dr.Suess, a ThanksVegan feast, and a salon right out of Brooklyn.

We’re also pleased to announce our list of artists: The full lineup is here. A convenient calendar is here.

June 30 – July 2 ~ Quito Ziegler & friends: an evening of film, music and dance

This weekend features the World Premiere of: THE DREAM OF WILD PONIES DANCING (2011)

The Dream of Wild Ponies Dancing documents the wild ponies of the night in their natural habitat. In the quiet deep green of a sandy midnight forest, four wild ponies recognize each other as kin and develop a sense of connection and family. Half human, all beast, the ponies run free on a mystical adventure through the dunes, arriving to a deserted beach as gray dawn breaks. The movement is captured silently in super-grainy black and white super-8 film, presented with original score by Princess Tiny & the Meats. More about this event. Info on the artist is here.
