Interview with Ariel “Speedwagon” Federow

Sarah Jenny speaks with Ariel Federow about her upcoming performances July 21-23: details here.
SJ: Hi Ariel, I am really excited to interview you about your upcoming performance for Fame & Shame on the Lower East Side. Can you tell me a little bit about the piece?
Ariel: Totally! This is a work in progress showing of a larger piece I am working on about the ways in which we are vulnerable – all of the ways that things could go terribly wrong and why it is that they don’t. It’s a performance work that uses slapstick and clowning to open up these big questions – how do we make sense of a world of natural disasters, apocalyptic threats, and random death? And, really, how can we not, given that this is the world we live in?
SJ: How did you come to create this piece? What inspired it?
Ariel: You know, when I was 20 I had my first apartment in Seattle, all on my own, a seedy little ground-floor one-bedroom in the really, for real, uncool part of town I could afford.

The Gorgon Approaches on July 14th!

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

Published by admin on June 21st, 2011

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.


July 7-9: Heather Ács and friends ~ this is what we have…

Published by admin on June 21st, 2011

Sometimes what we have is not enough. Sometimes what we have is far too much… you don’t need to be famous, you don’t need to be rich, dreamin’ is free.

Enjoy an intergalactic exploration of adventures, interconnectivity & the story of stardust-all under the stars! Sometimes what we have, is just right.
