Did you know that FADO new website is also an artists’ project by I know you know? Each of the categories on the menu (look to the left <<<) are associated with a colour and its corresponding fragrance. Scroll down to the bottom of any page to read the scent recipe.
FADO’s new website performs memory through colour and scent. It’s not a scratch n’ sniff (YET) but you can still experience FADO’s range of scents for yourself. Look for all the scents from our website (and therefore, performance art in general) as they roll (or should we say, waft) out over the year. Unique collectible objects and performance interventions link it all together.
Start with our signature scent, PERFORMANCE YELLOW. If you have ever wondered what performance art smells like, now is your chance. We would like to send you a limited edition scented postcard and all we need is your mailing address. CLICK THIS LINK.
(Another scent in the collection will be launched in the spring so get on that mailing list now.)

La Pocha Nostra Workshop hosted by Live Art Ireland
With LPN Artistic Directors Guillermo Gómez-Peña and Balitrónica
April 7–10, 2023

The Pocha Workshop is internationally recognized as an amazing and rigorous artistic and anthropological experiment in which carefully selected artists from several countries and every imaginable artistic, ethnic, multicultural, and gender persuasion begin to negotiate common ground. Performance becomes the connective tissue and lingua franca for our temporary community of rebel artists.

In this 4-day intensive, participants will be immersed in LPN’s performance art techniques and exercises with a focus on the human body as a site for creation, reinvention, memory and activism. This cross-cultural, cross-disciplinary and cross-generational laboratory will include up to 16 international artists. We consider our performance workshop intensives to be our most important pedagogical endeavours of the year.

What will be taught?
The 5-hour per-day workshop will offer two parallel processes: Participants are exposed to La Pocha Nostra’s most recent performance methodologies, an eclectic combination of exercises borrowed from multiple traditions including performance art, experimental theater and dance, the Suzuki method, ritual shamanism, performance games and live jam sessions. Parallel to this hands-on process, the group will analyze the creative process, the issues addressed by the work, its aesthetic currency, cultural impact and political pertinence.

Who should attend?
Performance artists, experimental actors, dancers, theorists, activists and students interested in the topics addressed by La Pocha Nostra. Ages can range from 18 to 80 years old. Applicants must have some performance experience and must be familiar with La Pocha Nostra’s work. The workshop is extremely fun but both physically and intellectually rigorous.

Guillermo Gómez-Peña (Mexico/US) Artistic Director, Madrina of all things Pochx & Border Bruja is a performance artist, writer, activist, radical pedagogue and artistic director of performance troupe La Pocha Nostra. His performance work and 21 books have contributed to the debates on cultural, generational, and gender diversity, border culture and North-South relations. His art work has been presented at over one thousand venues across the US, Canada, Latin America, Europe, Russia, South Africa and Australia. Gómez-Peña is currently a Patron for the London-based Live Art Development Agency, and a Senior Fellow in the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics.

Balitrónica (US/Mexico) Artistic Co-Director, Priestess & Psychomagic Occultist is a cyborg-feminist poet, performance artist, radical pedagogue, ritualist, hereditary witch, and 2nd Degree Cabot Priestess. Since joining La Pocha Nostra, she has made a full-time performance practice that explores the ideas of ritual psychomagic acts, occult methods of transcendence, and the human body as conduit.

London Ontario Media Arts Association Launches (LOMAA) is excited to premiere Virtual Encounters: New Entanglements in Performance and Media in Spring 2023. This series features new or reimagined projects by practitioners working at the nexus of performance and media art.

Virtual Encounters: New Entanglements in Performance and Media
Curated by Christine Negus

Presented online and across various platforms through LOMAA from March through June 2023.

FIRST TO PREMIERE | Kite & David Yu
Artists in conversation: March 5 @ 3pm EST

APRIL | Anyse Ducharme & Jacob Wren
Live performance / Artists in conversation: April 2 @ 3pm EST

MAY | Raven Chacon & John Dieterich with Ellen Moffat
Live performance / Artists in conversation: May (date TBA)

JUNE | Jerron Herman & Autumn Knight
Artists in conversation: June 4 @ 3pm EST

With an extensive history rooted in a dialogue on “live”-ness and the ephemeral, performance art has weathered a major shift over the past few years. Though the COVID-19 global pandemic has undoubtedly impacted all arts-related programming, live and time-based practices in particular have been forced to renegotiate presentation modes and adapt to a more virtual, screen-based life. Performance art’s merge with the digital realm, with its seemingly opposite characteristics based in permanence and the archival, has raised challenges for both areas of work. Through this convergence, performance artists have been asked to reconsider these aforementioned essential disciplinary attributes in relation to their practice—both in presentation and developing new projects. These uncharted possibilities associated with the virtual have produced exciting outcomes, which continue to redefine and reimagine praxis, and the fields of both performance and media art, in novel ways.

Over spring 2023 LOMAA is pleased to facilitate Virtual Encounters: New Entanglements in Performance and Media, which investigates performance art’s newly defined relationship with media. The organization has invited seven artists and one artist duo to present new mediated performances that unsettle their previous modes of creation and address the challenges faced in digital translation. The invited artists span the gamut of performance practices and represent various modalities across the discipline—expanding from, and blurring lines between, embodied movement, sonic interactivity, and intermediality. Virtual Encounters aims to be generative and open possibilities for artists to re-envision their work and to investigate new archival processes, novel (virtual) space, and a wholly different relationship with audiences.

A companion publication will be produced in conjunction with the series, featuring critical and creative contributions from Golboo Amani, Shannon Cochrane, C.W. Crawford, Che Gossett, and Sandra Ruiz.

London Ontario Media Arts Association (LOMAA) is a regional, non-profit, artist-run organization focused on the exhibition of media art and experimental time-based work. With an emphasis on progressive contemporary Canadian practices, LOMAA supports the presentation of local, national, and international artists in the areas of moving images, performance, new media, and sound art while facilitating the creation of new work through workshops, commissioning, and partnership. The organization is committed to supporting dialogue about media art today through inclusive and intersectional public events and community engagement. Our dynamic programming seeks to involve audiences from London and the surrounding region, introducing them to innovative artists while encouraging new modes of creation from local makers.

Epicenter Revolutions
A Non-Binary Durational Performance Investigation into Internal Transformations and Identity

March 5, 2023
1:00pm–6:00pm
MainLine Theatre, 3997 St. Laurent Blvd
FREE

ARTISTS
Enok Ripley
Eish Van Wieren
Mycelium
Holly Timpener

Epicenter Revolutions is a performance event that investigates internal transformations within performance art. All artists in this project are transgender and/or non-binary. In their works, the artists examine how internal transformations felt within durational action(s) support transgender and non-binary identity and act as a form of political resistance. Transgender and non-binary bodies simply occupying space is an act of resistance towards heteronormative ideals in which everyday, lived experiences guide the construction of identity and community in public and counterpublic spaces. This event illuminates how transgender and non-binary bodies engage in durational performative action to listen, activate, and understand the personal and political affects of their lived experience. The artists insist that the acknowledgment and engagement of micro-changes felt by transgender and non-binary people creates resistance to oppression, heteronormativity, and gender binaries, ultimately creating systematic change, social justice, and united spaces where non-normative identities can flourish.

The presented works are durational and so there is no need to attend for the entire six hours.  To witness, please come any time between 1 and 6 pm.

We are particularly interested in artists who engage with possibilities (or impossibilities) of emancipatory, relational, and reparative art processes.

This is a three to six week artists’ residency in Milford House that can be conducted with a view to produce a performance/video artwork and/or for the purpose of research with no precondition for completion or performance.

Residencies will take place from the April 15 to May 31, 2023. A curatorial jury will meet to discuss the proposals to select artists. There are two small bursaries available for this residency of 300 Euro (funded by our membership scheme). This residency is part funded by a workspace grant from the Arts Council of Ireland.

    LOCATION ONLINE
    SOURCE EUROPEAN CULTURAL CENTRE (ECC)

Presented by the European Cultural Centre (ECC)
Performance Workshop: Inhabiting Time with Marilyn Arsem
March 28–April 25, 2023

At the heart of this course is the question of how to continue making live art in a world that is more often pre-recorded, edited and virtual. As participants focus on the element of time in their performance actions, we will consider questions such as ” What remains essential? What do we relinquish? What transforms?”

The pandemic has redefined our sense of time, as we have spent more time both in isolation and on the internet, juggling competing demands in our immediate households as well as ones in the virtual realm from other locations and time zones. The simultaneity of different realities, real and virtual, result in collisions when we encounter other people, creatures, and materials whose sense of time does not conform to our own. Rather than resisting those differences, how can we learn to move in concert with them?

Working with everyday materials and actions, participants will engage in a series of exercises to examine their experience and understanding of time. While these exercises were designed for artists creating durational performances, the insights gained in understanding how time operates in one’s life can be effectively applied to other practices. 
The course includes online group sessions, performance actions and writings outside of the online sessions as well as a final multi-day project.

DATES: March 28–April 25, 2023

PSi 28: Uhambo Luyazilawula (Embodied Wandering Practices)
In-Person: August 2–5, 2023

The Artistic Research Working Group (ARWG) of Performance Studies international (PSi) invites proposals to its 2023 gatherings. Following the ARWG’s established PERFORM/RESPOND/EXTEND framework, three interconnected online gatherings will be held, one month apart, between 30 June and 30 August, 2023. The ARWG in-person gathering will be held onsite in conjunction with PSi 28 in Johannesburg, South Africa, August 2–5, 2023.

The PSi 28 theme, Uhambo Luyazilawula (Embodied Wandering Practices), is particularly well-suited to the ARWG’s preoccupations. The conference Call for Proposals explicitly emphasizes “performative ‘wanderings’: creative journeys and intersections between past, present, and future, digital and in-person” and “alternative epistemologies: explorations of undiscovered performances, pedagogies and practices.” In this, it clearly shares the ARWG’s priorities of “mobility, wandering, and fluidity” in terms of subject matter and process design.

Online Gatherings:
March 30 | deadline for proposals
April 30 | acceptances announced and ‘perform/respond/extend’ partnerships established
June 30 | Gathering #1: participants make initial presentations/performances
July 30 | Gathering #2: participants offer a performative response to designated presentations/performances
August 30 | Gathering #3: participants offer a performative ‘extension’ of designated presentations & responses

Onsite Gathering:
The ARWG in-person gathering will emphasize artistic research exchange with South African artists and artist-researchers new to the ARWG. It will be held onsite in conjunction with PSi 28 in Johannesburg, South Africa.

momentum VI: How to Unmesh the Garden of Eden with Timothy Morton

The much-awaited sixth momentum episode sees Andrea Pagnes with thinker-writer Timothy Morton. This encounter is spiked with bittersweet thought stirrings that unfold chromatically, like a flower opening: an adaptive AI, or art that creates the future. Flâneurs of our time, their minds wander through a field of strange plants: the monstrous faces of contemporaneity such as the surge of neofascism and the anthropocentric, capitalism-caused climate emergency. As they navigate through thinking that challenges binary dichotomies, they recover the value of the meaningless and nonsense. Examining facets of human nature, they touch on culture and religion, violence and resistance, love and depression, and Timothy’s core concepts: Deep Time as a hyperobject, strange strangers, the interconnectedness of the mesh, and how that all relates to hell.
