The 248 Bed-Stuy Gallery is located at 248 Monroe St., southeast from

Nostrand Ave.  By subway, take the G train (Bedford-Nostrand stop) and

walk with the traffic to Monroe.  Or take the A/C train (Nostrand

stop) and walk against traffic.

AUNTS is about having dance happen.  The dance you’ve already seen, that pops into your head, that is known and expected and unknown and unexpected. Dance that seeps into the cracks of street lights, subway commotion, magazine myth, drunk nights at the bar, the family album, and the couch where you lay and softly glance at the afternoon light coming in through the window. AUNTS constantly tests a model of

producing dance/performance/parties. A model that supports the development of current, present, and contemporary dancing. A model that expects to be adopted, adapted, replicated, and perpetuated by any person who would like to use it.  Where performing can last five seconds or five hours; never a “work in progress.” Where the work of performing is backed by the “land of plenty” rather than “there is not

enough.” Where the work of  AUNTS defies the regulation of institution, capitalism, and consumerism. AUNTS is about being gracious in this world. Thank you.
