Between Walled Rooms is a series of freeform responses to live performance works by female identifying and gender nonconforming choreographers, initiated by Tara Sheena. This work is a response to Hadar Ahuvia’s “Everything you have is yours?”.
The impacts of grief, however miniscule or massive, are the focus of “Submerge 2017: Break Time”, a festival curated primarily by Ali Rosa-Salas. Interested in the ways in which “we” are “permitted” to grieve in public space and, as the curatorial statement offers, a concern on the “expectation to bounce back,” Rosa-Salas has assembled an enriching near week of events, ranging from breath work to brunch to bike rides, in recognition of the ways the personal is political; the ways we are alone with others; and the ways in which everything, art or otherwise, is necessarily interdependent.
Is this enough
Is this fucked
Is this now
Is this boring

Your tea drinking
What flavor and why
Like live performance. Like everything.
