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.

Thanks to Quito Ziegler and Nogga Schwartz for documenting such tender moments…and to Bevin Branlandingham for her Rebel Cupcake party where many of these are from! — can you find YOURself?!
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.
