THIS MACHINE, in association with Bad and Nasty’s “Not My President's Day"
Diverse performers, artists, thinkers, and makers of all kinds from Minneapolis, around the country and the world come together to redefine our public space from one of singular and stagnant violence and isolation to one of connection, complexity and motion in repsonse to the recent election.
THIS MACHINE: Not My President's Day involved public, site-specific performances that will began in various sites in the Twin Cities, moved onto public transit lines, and culminated at The Red Stag Supperclub (thank you, Kim Bartmann!) for an evening of performance, conversation, and shared food and drink. Priority was given to women, POC, immigrants, LGBTQ and the disabled. Performers included Canrage: The Executioner, DOSH, Angelique Lele, Gabriel Roderick, The Florists, Mary Moore Easter, Betty Tisel and hte Uprisingers, DJ Zebruh, Young Dance, Shohei Iwahama, and Farrwell, among many others who heeded the call to take up space together for integrity, empowerment, and humanity. Through art, embodiment, and activation of public space, we will resist, we will commune, we will build THIS MACHINE.https://www.facebook.com/groups/1802821339984710/
