WORLDS TOGETHER, WORLDS APART
Every Friday, April 6th - May 4th, 2012
3:00 - 6:00 PM
37th Road Pedestrian Plaza
Jackson Heights, Queens
QMAD, Queens Media Arts Development, presents ITINERANT, a citywide festival for Contemporary Performance Art to be hosted at various venues in the five boroughs of New York City. ITINERANT 2012 focuses on live performative works that treat notions of intimacy, self-reflection, and introspection.
Hector Canonge and Camila Cañeque present the durational, site-specific performance and public intervention "Worlds Together, Worlds Apart"inspired by the transient nature of people, and the ephemeral relevance of historical figures. The performance evokes the complex relationship, influence, and dependence between the colonizer and the colonized, the lover and the enemy, the Old and New Worlds, the Americas and Europe, and the present with the past.
ITINERANT 2012 focuses on live performative works that treat notions of intimacy, self-reflection, and introspection. Artists working in Contemporary Performance Art were selected to participate from an open call that attracted more than 175 local, national and international submissions. Forty five artists will be featuring new and existing works that explore the program’s theme over a period of 5 weeks starting on March 30th through May 5th.
In addition, ITINERANT will present Public Performances at the new 37th Road Pedestrian Plaza (between 74th and 73rd Streets) in Jackson Heights, Queens, every Friday, April 6th – May 4th, 3 – 6 PM,
I am accustomed to being uncomfortable and I really like it. Perhaps I am just a little disingenuous; I think that discomfort keeps me honest. Also, being uncomfortable seems like a difficult choice, and if I think something is difficult, that is was what I want to do. Where do all of these stressful choices lead me? I crave structure. Not to mention coffee.
I seek to explicate intellectual and emotional content through movement and imagery. I am interested in philosophy, history, mathematics and systems of power. I try to make dry topics lively but this does not mean I don’t indulge in the occasional formal exercise, abstract tango or series of portraits of buildings. I am interested in greater perspective but sometimes, small details create a telling narrative. I am rigorous in my study but loose in my application. I defy genre without meaning to. I want to do everything at once but can only do one thing at a time.
