Event Description

Co-MISSION Festival Of New Works | June 1-4
This Mini-Festival Will Premiere New Projects Developed By Our Co-Mission Resident Artists: Jenn Freeman, Joanna Furnans, Darling Shear, And Jessica Ray.

Dynamite by Jenn (Po'Chop) Freeman (June 1 & 2)
Dynamite is an exploration into memory and masculinity. It is the reimagining of traditions. It is finding one’s self within the legacies of those who came before us.

Genuine Fake by Joanna Furnans (June 3 & 4)
Genuine Fake is a work exploring our tendency to conform or defer to the will of the mass. It’s about expressions of individuality within a group of like-minded peers. It’s about conflicts between group identities and personal identities, and contradictions between what we say and what we actually do.

The Original Showgirl by Darling Shear (June 2 & 4)

All That I Remember by Jessica Ray (June 2 & 3)
Here we are. What kind of time does it take to show up, listen, and continue? Memory slips through the work as it’s composed for the environment, the viewers, the constraints of the situation. Are we still here, right now? Without interruption, carrying on, here for you, you for me. In the absence of music we can follow this wherever it goes. The time we have will be sufficient.
