Public Functionary Presents:
In Which _______ and Others Discover The End
In Which _____ and Others Discover the End harnesses the transformative power and value of contemporary performance, stimulating our collective capacity to dream, think inventively, and make connections between divergent ideas while creating space for reflection and dialogue. In Which will include three components: A visual installation/exhibition by Liz Miller, open SuperGroup and Brute Heart performance rehearsals during gallery hours and a grand finale series of free performances to cap off the exhibit run.
SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:
All Events are Free & Open to the Public
LIZ MILLER EXHIBIT OPENING RECEPTION
March 7th (7pm-12am)
Installation artist Liz Miller will build on her existing interests in creating large-scale, site specific works with mixed media such as felt, fabric, tarp, paper and spray paint, while responding to the conceptual framework of the larger project and exploring possibilities for interaction in performance. The exhibition will open to the public on Saturday, March 7 and include a series of 2D works on paper as well.
ONGOING REHEARSALS & PF TAKEOVERS
(March 9 – March 20)
Gallery hours to view the installation will be open to the public throughout the month of March. In addition, several of the scheduled gallery hours will feature open rehearsals in which the public can view the performance work in progress. Every Friday night during the run of the exhibit leading up to the performances, other outsider groups will “take over” the space and curate music and performances unrelated to the overall project. This will activate the gallery and provide a “public space” context for the final part of the project.
FINAL PERFORMANCE SERIES
March 27, 28, 29 & April 2, 3, 4 (Each night @ 8pm, except March 29 @ 3pm / Free)
The final piece will be a more recognizably formal performance within Miller’s installation, with rigorous movement, both improvisational and set; expansive spoken language and singing; and an integral sound score performed live by Brute Heart. Eschewing a single unifying framework, it will instead weave layers of narrative, content and form to create poetic frictions and synchronicities. In Which will encompass a range of performance modes and audience interactions that are both engaging and powerful.
