Crashing the Dumbo Arts Festival

29 Sep

Yesterday we met at the cube in the park near the Manhattan Bridge piling and danced solo, with bystanders, with each other, and eventually developed an audience. This happened in the midst of the dumbo Arts Festival so the place was busy with streaming crowds. (Off topic tangent: I was a part of the first dAF during which our max crowd was probably about 20.)

My favorite moments were those split seconds when the light visibly changed in peoples’ eyes as they realized that something out of the ordinary was happening around them. I feel we accomplished a desirable balance between creating wonder and antagonizing unwilling participants. It was fun to find that line and walk it, but as Rebeca said, it challenged all the improvising muscles we have developed.

Thank you, gang, for being willing to go out without knowing how it would play out.

So what’s next? GC? Times Square? Could we train people in it? What should we call it? To me it is ‘reality hacking.’

Filmmaker and visual artist Fred Hatt made this short film out of footage he took at Antititled open houses this past spring at Ran Tea House in Brooklyn, NY. Take a look and feel free to come join us for next month:

29 April, 7:30pm
Ran Tea House—269 Kent Ave between S1st and S2nd Streets

Come join us for our monthly open rehearsal to see a presentation of our ongoing research, combining space, motion, and sound. We want to hear what you feel and see and think. The tea house is spacious and the bar is open, serving beer and tea.

Free entrance, cheap drinks (something like $4?), and good people. Though we will accept donations if you want to help us keep a good thing going!
