Tuesday, December 3, should prove to be a particularly amazing day. It includes:
EXORCISE CLASS--facilitated by the aforementioned curators--"A hyper-aerobic, sweaty, instructional,conceptual dance party designed to work out you psychic fat blockage and tone up supersensory abz. While living your spandex dreams and looking real." (11am-1pm at Danspace Project; $10)
WE CAME TO THIS CITY TO SHIT ON A STAGE--"How do we make, define, notice 'transgressive' art in a city whose identity, economy and landscape are increasingly manicured, welcoming, mainstream, highly visible and inaccessible?" (6pm at Gibney Dance Center; FREE)
PERFORMING VULNERABILITY--"What does it mean to be vulnerable in performance? Is vulnerability a state or can it be 'done?'" Panel moderated by Adrienne Truscott.
