TROUBLE PERFORMING: EPISODE 5

January 28, 2017

Welcome to another episode of Trouble Performing, a series of salon-style conversations around issues in contemporary live art practice, hosted by Pulsar, that’s Tif Robinette & Ian Deleón. 
This episode was recorded on January 28, 2017 in Brooklyn, NY and we were joined by: 

Mara Catalan. Mitchell Murdock. Olivia Coffey. Daniella Lagaccia. Mike and Amy of Wild Torus. Kalan Sherrard, and Jess Kramer. 

Our discussions focused largely on the topic of trigger warnings and how these could or should be more widely incorporated into performance practices. And in particular, we spend a fair amount of time discussing the controversy around a recent piece from back in December, in which audience members reacted vehemently to a performance some categorized as out-of-touch, or even flat out racially insensitive. 

Join us as we delve once again into the nuances and intricacies of the vibrant performance art community here in NYC and beyond.

TROUBLE PERFORMING: EPISODE 4

September 03, 2016

Our conversation focused primarily on the politics of performing trauma, whether channeling the pain of other bodies, or re-performing an abstraction of one’s own. We discussed the difference between “speaking for” and “speaking with”, and the false notion that a performance art piece can be considered “done” once completed. Listen closely for a special performative reading of Nyugen’s writing and the beginning of an articulation of Pulsar’s mission by Tif Robinette, in the elaboration of her concept: Radical Intimacy. Enjoy.

"Everything to be called into question."

"Do not try, and do not wish, to draw tears from the public with the tears of your models, but with this image rather than that one, this sound rather than that one, exactly in their place."

"Production of emotion determined by a resistance to emotion. "
