I Heart Judson
Date: Monday, April 27, 2009
Location: Judson Memorial Church, 55 Washington Sq. South, NY, NY, 10012
Description: What’s in a name? If identity is formed through an ongoing process of relational, lived experiences, can a performance be a stopping point along the way? This evening’s performances consider the construction of personal greatness or folly, in a fame-obsessed, spectacle-driven culture. I Heart Judson is also a means to address Judson Memorial Church’s status as a communal figurehead for historic experiments in performance. Performers include Rafael Sanchez, Patrick Davison and Mike Rugnetta. Recommended: It takes place when it doesn’t: On dance and performance since 1989, edited by Hochmuth, Kruschkova & Schöllhammer.
